Paradox Politics: People and Power in Idaho (1988) was where we started. It told the story of politics in Idaho over the last half-century up to the mid-80s, and a varied and entertaining story it was, with colorful figures, scandal and stolen elections (or allegations of same), dramatic reversals and more. Idaho politics has changed a bit in the years since.
A number of the books we have published in the years since have concerned Idaho and its government and politics.
Following up on the two monthly periodicals we publish on water rights, we’ve also moved into that area for books. In 1999 and (more comprehensively) in 2009, we published two books drawn mainly from those publications about the Snake River Basin Adjudication.
In 2010, we published a book about water rights nationally.
