This is a revision of a classic survey history of California. Ever since its first appearance nearly thirty years ago, one of the strengths of this book has been its comprehensive analysis of the vital developments of California in the 20th century. The excellent balance of narration and interpretation continues in this edition. It offers an unparalleled account of contemporary California, the events of the late 80's and 90's, as well as expanded coverage of social and cultural history, particularly on the post-1960's.
