Florida Government and Politics
This series has been expanded and renamed Government and Politics in the South. Please visit that series page.
The case can be made that Florida politics is national politics in microcosm. The impact of Florida on the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections, the emergence of the South as a major player on the political landscape (and Florida's preeminent role in that phenomenon), and the general acknowledgement of Florida as a political bellwether all suggest a need to explore the politics of the Sunshine State in greater detail. Books in this series will explore exclusively the myriad aspects of politics political science and history, and government in Florida.
There are 11 books in this series.
