William D. Eggers and Robert N. Campbell III, editors
Sounds like a lot, but with more than 12 new governors in office, these people have many policy issues to tackle. The book provides them -- and us -- with a highly readable look at the problems they face. Given how the federal government has ceded the lead on a growing number of policy issues, it's heartening to see how state government continues to function and innovate.
Problems are mounting, however, making it harder to overcome policy, funding and political obstacles to state reform. Eggers and Campbell provide an intelligent guide on how to start solving some of these significant problems, and an informative and astute analysis of some of the most compelling problems faced by state government.
