KIRKUS REVIEW

Cleland demonstrated his grasp of California's history in a juvenile published last year, California Pageant, which captured the drama, the history, the people of the state and compressed it into brief compass. Now comes this book, supplementing such books as Drury's remarkable California: An Intimate Guide (Harper) by giving a concentrated study of the phenomena of 20th century California, with its development on all fronts,- economic, industrial, agricultural, artistic. These years saw a changing state, with political upheavals, labor wars, economic and social development, boom and depression, harnessing of water, and a creation of a focus artistically. Tribute and critique- an important book for the pending centennial.
