As the United States moves toward becoming a nation of suburbs, New Jersey-its most suburban state-is a place more Americans should get to know. Its volatile, candidate-centered elections are decided by politically independent suburbanites. New Jersey's experience provides lessons as other states seek to protect the environment, improve the quality of life, and accommodate a multicultural society while sustaining growth and opportunity.
