By state law, graduates of public colleges and universities in Georgia must demonstrate proficiency with both the U.S. and Georgia constitutions. This widely used textbook helps students to satisfy that requirement, either in courses or by examination. This brief and affordable study aid begins with a discussion of the ways that state and local governments, in providing services and allocating funds, affect our daily lives. Subsequent chapters are devoted to

the development of our federal system and the importance of constitutions in establishing authority, distributing power, and formalising procedures

how the various state constitutions differ from each other, even as they all complement the U.S. Constitution

how constitutions in Georgia have been amended or replaced

Georgia's governmental institutions at the state, county, and city levels

elections in Georgia, including the basic ground rules for holding primaries, general elections, and runoffs

Key terms and concepts are covered throughout the book, as well as important court cases at the national and state level. In addition, helpful lists, diagrams, and tables summarise and compare such information as

the structure of Georgia's court system
