This major revision of a classic text demonstrates the principle that responsible and responsive government still depends upon state level political parties, especially when it comes to the most vulnerable citizens-children, the poor, and the elderly. Marshalling up-to-date references and statistics, a series of biographical profiles, and new chapters on budgetary politics, welfare reform, and educational policy, Morehouse and Jewell bring the wealth of their experience to bear on the arena of government most likely to influence citizens' lives with the greatest impact-state level politics and policies.

Sarah McCally Morehouse is professor emerita at the University of Connecticut. Malcolm E. Jewell is professor emeritus at the University of Kentucky.

A most impressive work. It covers a broad expanse, offers original research, and makes a persuasive case for the centrality of political parties in state politics. This is the book we have been waiting for.
Alan Rosenthal, Eagleton Institute of Politics, Rutgers University

The second edition of State Politics, Parties, and Policy is a clear, comprehensive, and up-to-date account of politics and policy-making in the fifty American states. Easily comprehensible to students, it provides a theoretical framework that enhances understanding of how variations in state politics lead to different governmental practices and policies. In looking for the best guide to this politics and its consequences, Morehouse and Jewell's book would be my choice.
Paul A. Beck

Morehouse and Jewell's book is wonderfully written and they provide a sophisticated and comprehensive review of the field. Organized with a persuasive argument on the centrality of the political party for understanding and analyzing state politics and policy-making, this is a book for the professional and the student, and it is likely to become the standard text in the field.
Richard F. Winters, Dartmouth College

Well-written, thematic, and comprehensive. I learned things from this book and I've been teaching the subject for twenty-five years!
