Using a comparative framework, Politics in Georgia examines four topics: the historical, social, economic, and constitutional foundations of contemporary Georgia politics; political participation, including public opinion, elections, political parties, and interest groups; major political institutions, including the legislature, governorship, bureaucracy, the legal system, and local government; and selected public policies, such as taxing and spending, education, economic development, and social welfare.
Rather than examining Georgia in isolation, Politics in Georgia compares the state with the national government and the other forty-nine states as well as with earlier periods, giving the reader a comprehensive history of the state's political development. This book is a useful and valuable resource for anyone interested in state and local politics, including scholars, university students, libraries, journalists, government officials, and civic and business organizations.
