Overview

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. It invites them to engage 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 a significant impact on the state. The new edition offers an analysis of Governor Schwarzenegger in context and of how California's fiscal condition, educational system, and response to the diversity of its residents will likely shape the state's politics in the future.
