Description

Now in its ninth edition,Power and Politics in California continues its tradition of asking Californians to take a hard and systematic look at their state governance, and engage themselves in a critical analysis of what is working, what is not, and what changes need to be made for the state to meet the increasingly formidable challenges it faces.

The “era of Arnold” is now in its mid-stages, and the rise of this very different political personality has had significant impacts on the state.  This ninth edition provides analysis of Governor Schwarzenegger in context and looks forward to how California’s fiscal condition, educational system, and response to diversity will play a vital role in shaping the state’s politics in the future.
