Democracy in California

Politics and Government in the Golden State


Democracy in California: Politics and Government in the Golden State is a readable and thought-provoking textbook, which clearly explains the politics and character of California's governmental institutions and the dynamics affecting the lives of Californians. In addition to thorough coverage of California's constitution and development, this book also examines each branch of government as well as local systems. As Janiskee and Masugi explore the nature of public opinion, parties, and campaigns, they show the effects that the state's diverse population has on all levels of politics and government.

The fourth edition is updated throughout and includes analysis of the 2012 and 2014 elections and discussion of recent events such as

  • immigration reform,
  • Jerry Brown’s second term,
  • the new primary election system,
  • revised term limits,
  • and the revision of the “three strikes” law.

New case studies in each chapter bring ideas to life and challenge students to become active participants in California politics. Perfect for courses in American government and state and local politics,
Democracy in California is a succinct guide to the governmental intricacies of our nation's most populous state.
