CA atlasHow did a far-flung territory of the United States turn into its economic powerhouse?

We take you through the history and political economy of California, with geographer Richard Walker.

Richard Walker, Professor of Geography at UC Berkeley and author of The Atlas of California: Mapping the Challenge of a New Era
