This undergraduate textbook applies concepts from political science and American government to the state of California. In particular, it looks at how demographic, cultural, economic, geographic, and political diversity create a tug-of-war between interest groups that makes governing quite a challenge. The fourth edition contains new material on Governor Schwarzenegger's first years in office and an analysis of California's role in the 2004 presidential election.
