lgnc 200pxHow does local government work in North Carolina? What is the difference between city government, county government, state and federal government? How does local government affect daily life?

First published in 1993, "Local Government in North Carolina" answers those questions for a general audience. Widely used in civic education courses, the book describes how North Carolina cities, towns, and counties are organized and what they do. The book encourages playing an active role in one's own community and becoming personally engaged in maintaining an effective government.

Get engaged and  know your local government!
