Electoral Structure and Urban Policy: The Impact on Mexican American Communities

Synopsis

"This book examines how electoral structure, representation styles, and policy outputs affect the urban Mexican American community in Texas. In so doing, it makes a major contribution to the larger study of minority politics in the context of urban electoral and political structures. The work combines two rich research traditions: case study analysis and aggregate data analysis. For the case studies, ten Texas cities are examined. Varying in total population, each has a Mexican American population of at least 18 percent. Aggregate data comes from a variety of sources, including surveys of city clerks and of mayors and council members in more than 100 cities as well as from EEO reports, city records, and litigation files."
