State of Change PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

State of Change free pdf Colorado has been at the centre of major shifts in American politics. Indeed, over the last several decades the political landscape has altered dramatically on both the state and national levels. "State of Change" traces the political and demographic factors that have transformed Colorado, looking beyond the major shift in the dominant political party from Republican to Democratic to greater long-term implications. The increased use of direct democracy has resulted in the adoption of term limits, major reconstruction of fiscal policy, and many other changes in both statutory and constitutional law. Individual chapters address these changes within a range of contexts - electoral, political, partisan, and institutional - as well as their ramifications. Contributors also address the possible impacts of these changes on the state in the future, concluding that the current state of affairs is fated to be short-lived. This is the most up-to-date book on Colorado politics available and will be of value to undergraduate and graduate level students, academics, historians, and anyone involved with or interested in Colorado politics.
