Manuel Pastor interviewed by Monika Bauerlein

The Golden State has not always been the bastion of liberalism it is viewed as today. Not even three decades ago, there were riots in the streets of Los Angeles, while racist policing, anti-immigration sentiment, and unfavorable tax policies cast a shadow on the sunny state. As award-winning USC professor Manuel Pastor states in his new book, things have turned around. Today, the state is at the forefront of environmental, economic, and political progressive movements. Pastor and interviewer Monika Bauerlein, CEO of Mother Jones magazine, examine the path California has traveled since the 1990s and map its trajectory for the future.
