One of the most comprehensive and easy-to-use government texts available, California Government offers a balanced focus on the institutional and behavioral aspects of the state's political foundations. Not only does this text fulfill the state politics requirement of the Cal State University system, but its comparative perspective and attention to issues of ethnicity make it a valuable complement to any general government text. Pedagogical features include a glossary of terms specific to the state of California, chapter-opening epigrams, and an extensive Notes section at the end of the text.
