The Changing Social and Political Landscape
The state of California has experienced many periods of rapid growth and change over the past 150 years. Many people classified California as a state which is successful in terms of progress because of the situations it has experienced. The main purpose of the book is to explore some questions in light of three major phenomena: Californians' strong and increasing political distrust; radical change in the racial and ethnic mix of the state's population; and the growing diversity of its regions. In connection to this scenario, many people believe that the most talked about aspect of California's future is rapid population growth, much of it the result of a phenomenal surge in immigration. If the state's past population trends can be classified as an indication of future trends, therefore, the predictions of massive growth will be realized.
