Jess: The Political Career of Jesse Marvin Unruh Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Although he never gained office above the California governmental level, Jesse Unruh acquired a national political reputation and an unprecedented amount of power in his state. Putnam (emeritus, history, California State U., Fullerton) focuses his career study on Unruh's 16 years in the legislature and his successful efforts to improve its quality. He also briefly reviews Unruh's early years and his legacy. Putnam concludes that not only has the California legislature lost its power, it has also lost its memory of powerful, effective legislators such as Unruh.
