Synopsis

For the first time in decades, here is an in-depth look at Minnesota government and politics, providing a useful overview of the history, structure, and distinctive characteristics of the political system in the North Star State. Minnesota's government is often held up as a role model for other states. Drawing on survey research, electoral analysis, interview data, and political experience, the authors examine contemporary politics in Minnesota, emphasizing in particular its long-standing moralistic dimension. Attention is given to the major components of the state's political system: the constitution, legislature, courts, relationship to both the federal system and local governments, lobbying, elections, campaign finance, and public attitudes towards taxes and services. Equally important, the authors assess various enduring myths and views about Minnesota politics, including its legendary liberalism and citizen involvement in the political scene. Daniel J. Elazar is a professor of political science at Temple University and Bar-Ilan University and director of the Center for the Study of Federalism.

He is the author or editor of more than fifty books including "Exploring Federalism". Virginia H. Gray is a professor of political science at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. She is a coauthor of several books including "Politics in the American States: A Comparative Analysis". Wyman L. Spano is a Minnesota lobbyist.
