In The California Republic, Brian P. Janiskee and Ken Masugi bring together a diverse group of contributors to shed light on the progressive nature of California government. In addition to thorough treatment of perennial issues like affirmative action, gun control, and education, this work goes outside the conventional understanding of the political sphere to examine such topics as California's revolutionary founding, the electronic media, and the Hollywood Western. Accordingly, the contributors include not only political scientists and historians, but journalists and political activists as well. The result is a clear exploration of the evolution of the progressive government in California and its contemporary policy consequences.
