With feedback from adopters, editor Laurence O&BAD:rsquo;Toole retains important classic selections from earlier editions while freshening this volume with new selections that cover not only the impact of recent fiscal developments and international influences on U.S. intergovernmental relations, but also explore the key role of the Supreme Court in shaping the system&BAD:rsquo;s evolution in such areas as homeland security, interstate relations, and local finance. Judicious editing of essays and substantial part introductions make American Intergovernmental Relations an invaluable text and an engaging read.
