A strong social emphasis and succinct narrative remain the hallmarks of the popular COMPETING VISIONS: A HISTORY OF CALIFORNIA, 2E. Chronicling the stories of people who have had an impact on the state's history, the text presents California as a hub of competing economic, social, and political visions. It highlights the state's cultural diversity and explicitly compares it to other Western states, the nation, and the world--illustrating the national and international significance of California's history. Extremely student-friendly, the text's chronological organization and thematic approach help you keep track of events and fully understand their significance. Telling the full story, COMPETING VISIONS concludes by discussing such current events as immigration and demographic changes, the Occupy Movement, energy challenges, and more.
