Abraham F. Lowenthal


On his book Global California: Rising to the Cosmopolitan Challenge

Cover Interview of June 07, 2009

Editor’s note

Originally, this interview ran on the Rorotoko cover page under the headline

“California at the boundary between international and domestic affairs.”

We highlighted two quotes.

On the first page:

“Leadership in the twenty-first century will take concerted action by California’s state and local authorities, its representatives in Congress, and many non-governmental actors.”

On the second:

“Too much is at stake for Californians to leave thinking and acting on international affairs to the federal government and to East Coast think tanks.”
