Since its original publication, Andrew Rolle's classic work has been enjoyed by more than 100,000 persons, students and general readers alike. Like its predecessors, the seventh edition of California: A History recounts the state's history from its origins to the present in an engaging manner, while seeking a balance between conflicting viewpoints. Today especially, Californians face severe implications of the state's overwhelming diversity and continuing population explosion. This seventh edition incorporates these dramatic new developments in a historical context, pondering implications for the future. Likewise, those sections of the book devoted to women, the environment, immigration (legal and illegal), crime, sports, energy, and transportation have all been expanded. The most obvious change to this edition is the addition of Arthur Verge as coauthor, and loyal users will be delighted to see the addition of many new photographs that also help keep our "classic" text vibrant and current.

Praise for a previous edition:
"When one considers the rapid growth and development, and the myriad of cultural influences which have had an impact on the state, Rolle does a remarkable job of amalgamating these elements into a coherent, well-written narrative." (Books of the South West, March 1988)
