This volume traces the evolution of progressive government in California and its contemporary policy consequences. Contributions from academics, journalists, and activists explore such topics as the creation of the 1849 California Constitution, the statesmanship of Ronald Reagan, the politics of public education, and the elections of 2002. The papers were presented at an October 2000 conference held at the Claremont Institute, and many have previously appeared in Nexus, the law and policy journal of the Chapman U. School of Law.
