CALIFORNIA: THE POLITICS OF DIVERSITY brings California politics to life using the two themes, diversity and hyperpluralism, that make this state's political climate so interesting. You will explore the growing proliferation of pressures and groups that compete for attention and make governing the state increasingly challenging. To illustrate the connection between California politics and American politics, the book discusses aspects of American politics, such as democratic, elite, and pluralist theories and how these broader concepts clarify understanding of California politics.
