    California Politics: Shifting Majorities, Emerging Minorities presents a contemporary view of the political, cultural, and social changes that have occurred in California in the late 20th century and early 21st century. This is a set of writings from distinguished scholars and observers of the California political scene whose analysis of the shifting racial majorities and emerging racial and cultural minorities in state has affected many facets of life.

    The issues of immigration, emergence and power of Latino politics, African American, Latino, and Korean American conflicts in the political arena, and the evolution of gay and lesbian politics all bring a unique tapestry of culture and race and ethnicity that was once dominated by an Anglo culture. The new edition features essays that reflect the dynamics of demographic change in California and an introduction that explores the origin and significance of the Black Lives Matter Movement

    This anthology will be useful for students seeking careers in teaching in California as well as students seeking to work in the urban communities of the Los Angeles area and the rural areas of the state. This book also offers case studies for political science and sociology students who are interested in the dynamics of race and class concerning historic moments in contemporary California history.
