Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0882958682, Paperback)

In the revised and updated third edition the authors begin their lively narrative with native Americans. Extensive coverage is then given to the Spanish "discovery," exploration, and settlement of the state. Through the Mexican-American War, and the madness prcipitated by the goldrush, the impact of the railroads, and the changes brought about by two world wars the authors follow the events that shaped the history of California.

A new feature of the book that will be welcomed by many instructors is the chapter on state government. In it, the responsibilities and roles of state officers are described, as are the duties and operation of the legislature and court system. The elements of "direct democracy"--the recall, referendum, and initiative--are presented also. Includes illustrations, maps, and tables.
