Description

This book, completely revised and updated, remains as indispensable today as when it first appeared in 1976. It is still the only volume that provides a basic background for every reader seeking a better understanding of the state's political system. Offered here is a concise introduction to the major institutions and processes of New Mexico government--from the constitutionally defined roles of governors and legislators to their informal exercise of power and interactions with each other, citizens, and courts, federal and state bureaucracies, media, and political parties.

In recent decades the state has seen attempts to reform its complicated governmental structure to respond to dramatic changes in its cultural, economic, environmental, demographic, and social character. The changes initiated in the 1980s are fully described in this new edition, with special attention given to state finances, local and tribal government, education, elections, and regulatory agencies.
