Book of the States

The 2010 edition of The Book of the States was the first in the publication's 76-year-history to be available in its entirety in a digital format.  Building on that success, the 2011 edition was also posted online in the Knowledge Center.  I am happy to report that previous editions dating back to 2004 are also now available in their entirety at www.csg.org/bookofthestates.
