The Los Angeles riots : lessons for the urban future by Mark Baldassare( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Los Angeles riots in spring 1992 were among the most violent and destructive events in twentieth-century urban America. This book addresses three questions: What were the causes of the riots, what actually took place, and what are the consequences and meaning of the riots for U.S. cities? The findings presented here provide strong evidence that the existence of an inner-city "underclass," the persistence of black-white tensions in U.S. society, and the emergence of inter-ethnic hostilities in urban neighborhoods are critical to understanding the Los Angeles riots and their implications. The book is crucial to everyone's understanding of the contemporary urban environment and will be ideal as a supplementary text in urban politics, sociology, urban planning and policy courses as well as in current affairs."--Jacket

The coming age of direct democracy : California's recall and beyond by Mark Baldassare( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the unique form of democracy that has been taking shape in California since the historic recall of Gray Davis and the election of Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2003. The authors examine how Governor Schwarzenegger's leadership has encouraged the growth of direct democracy, in which public policy decisions are made by voters at the ballot box rather than by elected representatives in the legislature. Using the Public Policy Institute of California Statewide Surveys, which include interviews with more than 150,000 Californians, Baldassare and Katz detail the transformation in the state's political climate and the public attitudes behind this change. The authors conclude that this transformation will likely take place in other states, perhaps even nationwide, and offer recommendations for ways to improve policymaking in a hybrid democracy."--Back cover
