Description


Journalist Peter Schrag argues that California’s role in the era of Trump is to act as a leader in the resistance to the current administration, and to be held up as an alternative to the course pursued in Washington. The Democratic Party’s grip on statewide elected offices and legislature has made California a beacon of progressivism. Schrag points to the state’s shifting demographics and the erosion of the Republican Party in the wake of Proposition 187 as two major reasons behind California’s move to the left. This book raises the possibility of this shift becoming the story of other states.
