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.
