The only available history of conservative politics in California, this book deals with the myriad factors that led to the formation and rise of the conservative movement in California after World War II, culminating in the election of Reagan as governor in 1966. Schuparra brings the unusual perspective of gender, race, and rhetoric into the story and is especially interested in the movement's role in pivotal electoral contests. This study also assesses how the struggle between California liberals and conservatives -- and those caught in the middle -- both reflected and influenced the national debate over major government policies and social issues, particularly on racial matters.
