California Crucible"Deeply researched and forcefully argued, California Crucible reveals how a grassroots Democratic political project in California began to emerge in the 1940s and came to control party politics by the mid-1970s. Bell's Democrats are a distinctively post-New Deal phenomenon, and by showing their resilience and influence, the so-called rise of the Right, in Bell's rendering, is hardly the undisputed vanquishing of the Left that historians of American conservatism claim it to be."–Mark Brilliant, University of California, Berkeley
