1st ed. c2014.
This work analyzes demographic changes in Texas and forecasts the implications of those changes. The author explores how socioeconomic factors will affect areas such as education, healthcare, business, and unemployment. His analysis indicates that without substantial policy changes, the “Texas Challenge” will likely be an increase in poverty and a decrease in competitiveness. He hopes to demonstrate how analyzing demographic information can help leaders craft policies to tackle the state’s challenges in the future.

"In this introduction to Marxism and the law, this book presents a unified and coherent view of Marxism, which it uses to examine the specific characteristics of legal institutions, rules, and ideals. The book pays particular attention to the place of ideology in law, the distinction between base and superstructure, and the destiny of law in a Communist society. Its principal theme is the Marxist critique of the ideal of the Rule of Law. The book argues that the main purpose of a Marxist theory of law is to expose the belief in the Rule of Law as being a subtle and pervasive ideology which serves to obscure the structures of class domination within the State. The book frequently subjects the Marxist approach to criticism and it shows that many of the Marxist claims about law are unproven or misconceived." - from the publisher
