Notes:
"Each of the seven chapters ... covers the administration of one of the state's governors, beginning at the end of World War II while Herbert B. Maw was governor and ending in 1995 during Mike Leavitt's first term. These seven chapters also cover a wide variety of topics, including politics, economic development, education, law and order, the environment, health and medicine, and the relationship between the tate and national events. Change is an important theme intertwined with all this, and it is usually discussed against the background of the transformations taking place on the larger American stage"--Jacket.
