Shay, Damien-Design. As New. 6" X 9" 325 Pages Indexed. A brand new book with no defects noted and the interior text pages are near flawless. The beginning of the twenty-first century was marked by the presence of more than 1.8 million New Mexicans, continued growth in the Rio Grande corridor, and changes in the state's governorship and top legislative posts. This revision of New Mexico Government, Third Edition, updates information found in the earlier edition. Throughout the writing, the editors compare New Mexico's governmental institutions and practices with those of other states of the union. Though many of the political faces have changed, many of the issues have not. New Mexicans and their governments continue to wrestle with issues as diverse as water and the environment, DWI, education, crime and drugs, and economic development. This book is an attempt to present descriptions and explanations of the structures and environments in which some of those efforts occur. Following a brief look at New Mexico's history and culture, chapters cover the state's constitution, the three branches of government, local governmental structures, American Indian tribal governments, elections, and education. Contents in 12 Chapters: New Mexico The Setting, The New Mexico Constitution, The Legislature, The Fragmented Executive, Law and the Courts by Peter Kierst, Local Governments by Maurilio E. Vigil, American Indians and Tribal Governments by Fred Harris and Laura Harris, Voting Elections and Parties, Politics and the Media by Bob M. Gassaway and Fred V. Bales, The Fiscal Structure, Governing New Mexico's Schools by David L. Colton and Luciano Baca, and A Concluding Note.
