Thoroughly updated with the coverage of the 2008 elections, the Fifth Edition of CALIFORNIA GOVERNMENT offers a balanced exploration of 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.

John L. Korey has taught American and California Politics at California Polytechnic University for nearly forty years. Korey has presented numerous conference papers and written many articles on California politics.
