Description - A California State of Mind by Mark Baldassare

An informative view of the state of California during its years of prosperity in the late-20th century, and more recent insecurity. Based on findings of the most comprehensive public opinion survey in the state, this book examines the beliefs, concerns, and public policy preferences of Californians during the 1990s, focusing in particular on Californians' deep and ongoing distrust of government and the way this distrust has shaped the recent political climate. The book combines an analysis of long-term trends - such as population growth and changing demography - with discussions of how the recent electricity crisis in 2001/2002 and the September 11 terrorist attacks have affected residents' distrust of government, which should make it a key source for Californians as they consider the future.
