“Remaking California” author talk with Heyday Books author Jeff Lustig and reception.

In Remaking California: Reclaiming the Public Good, leading writers and scholars probe the roots of this crisis, trace its effects on people’s lives and the environment, and propose reforms to remedy problems and restore the state’s democratic promise. They conclude that only a systemic overhaul will shake California out of its paralysis, and they debate the promise and pitfalls of a new constitutional convention for remaking the Golden State. Contributors include Dan Walters, Lenny Goldberg, Kevin Starr, Mark Paul, former Senator Barry Keene, and many more.

Jeff Lustig is a professor of government at California State University, Sacramento. He is the author of Corporate Liberalism: The Origins of Modern American Political Theory, 1890–1920, and he has written numerous articles on American and Californian politics and political theory, the corporatization of the modern university, and on immigration, race, and class. He was director of the Center for California Studies at California State University, Sacramento, and founding chair of the California Studies Association. He has been a trustee of the California Historical Society and a founder and chair of Northcoast Labor History Project
