SUMMARY

The political culture of Oregon has long had a reputation for innovative policy, maverick politicians, and independent political thought, but instead of using the term "progressive" to describe the state's political leanings, the editors ofOregon Politics and Governmentbelieve a more accurate descriptor would be "schizophrenic."Oregon Politics and Governmentprovides not only an overview of the state's politics and government; it also explains how the divide between progressives and conservative populists defines Oregon politics today. Early in the state's history, reformers championed many causes: the initiative and referendum process for setting public policy, the recall of public officials, the direct election of U.S. senators, and women's suffrage. Since then, the state has asserted control over beaches, imposed strict land-use laws, created an innovative regional government, introduced voting through the mail, allowed for physician-assisted suicide, and experimented with universal healthcare. Despite this list of accomplishments, however, Oregon is divided between two competing visions: one that is tied to progressive politics and another that is committed to conservative populism. While the progressive side supports a strong and active government, the conservative populist side seeks a smaller government, lower taxes, fewer restrictions on private property, and protection for traditional social values. The struggle between these two forces drives Oregon politics and policies today.Clucas, Richard is the author of 'Oregon Politics And Government Progressives Versus Conservative Populists', published 2005 under ISBN 9780803264366 and ISBN 0803264364.
