Gslcover This could be considered tooting my own horn, except I had nothing to do with this.

Governing's textbook, Governing States and Localities, has won a 2008 Textbook Excellence Award from the Text and Academic Authors Association.

The award -- called the "Texty" (presumably by only the Text and Academic Authors Association itself) -- will be given out at the Association's conference in Las Vegas in June.

Congrats to the textbook's authors!
