Citrin (political science, U. of California, Berkeley) and Martin (sociology, U of California, San Diego) observe the long-term effects of California's Proposition 13 on the 30th anniversary of its passing into law by editing this collection of essays from noted scholars, journalists and policy experts. Written for anyone with an interest in California history and public policy, these pieces review public opinion on the influence of this tax reform law since its enactment, especially in terms of resident mobility, fairness and public finance. A concluding piece from Joel Fox questions what Prop 13 author Howard Jarvis would think of his creation 30 years "after the tax revolution."
