State of Resistance: What California's Dizzying Descent and Remarkable Resurgence Mean for America's Future

In State of Resistance, Professor Manuel Pastor reviews the last several decades of economic, social and environmental transformations in California and what they can tell us about the road ahead for the United States. Pastor traces the redemptive arc of California's recent history and offers a clear path through the political polarization that grips the nation. The New York Times calls his conclusions "concise, clear and convincing.”
