Summary

For courses in California government
 
A practical, contemporary overview of California politics
California Government and Politics Today explains California’s ever-changing political situation in the context of social and economic trends. As in previous editions, author Mona Field focuses on the state’s ethnic and cultural diversity as well as the global economy’s impact on California (and vice versa). In addition, she helps students to view political involvement as an essential component of achieving the California Dream. The Fifteenth Edition includes updated data and coverage of contemporary issues, including contrasts between California and the nation after the 2016 presidential election.
 
NOTE: This ISBN is for a Pearson Books a la Carte edition: a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf text. In addition to the flexibility offered by this format, Books a la Carte editions offer students great value, as they cost significantly less than a bound textbook.
