Excerpt from Civil Government in California
IT is the purpose of this work to present in brief form something of the theory and practice of civil government in California. The scope of governmental activity widens from year to year, coming nearer and nearer the life of every individual; and, on the other hand, the intelligence of the individual and his general attitude toward public affairs, react more and more upon the government. The inﬂuence of the citizen is vital in the selection of public Officials, and in the attitude assumed toward them after they are selected. His power has been tremendously augmented in recent years by the widespread adoption of the direct primary, the initiative, the referendum, and the recall; and his intelligence must keep pace with his political power, or the commonwealth will suffer. The following chapters are intended to place in convenient form the most important features of the information which every responsible citizen should possess if his inﬂuence is to count for the common good.
