Special focus on recent developments including: strengthening the roles of states, tribes, and local governments is provided. The description of the policy-making process provides a concrete, unifying force in the text and discussions of historical legacies and regional differences give the reader a well-rounded understanding of the subleties of intergovernmental relations.
