Through a generous grant from the U.G. Dubach Chair in Political Science endowment at Oregon State University, the Oregon State University Press has provided all 60 members of the Oregon House of Representatives and all 30 members of the Oregon Senate with complimentary copies of the book “Governing Oregon: Continuity and Change” (OSU Press, November 2018). The books were delivered to legislative offices in February.
In an accompanying letter to senators and representatives, the editors of “Governing Oregon” write: “In assembling this book, we sought to provide Oregon citizens, students and officials a primer they can turn to for answers on a wide range of questions about the state’s culture, political processes and policies.”
This collection of essays is co-edited by Edward P. Weber, the Ulysses G. Dubach professor of political science in the School of Public Policy at Oregon State University; Richard A. Clucas, professor of political science at Portland State University and the executive director of the Western Political Science Association; Mark Henkels, professor in politics, policy, and administration at Western Oregon University; and Priscilla L. Southwell, professor of political science at the University of Oregon. With contributions from leading experts and political insiders, it will be of tremendous value to political scientists, public servants and engaged citizens alike.
