CALIFORNIA HISTORY Journal
PUBLISHED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA PRESS IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE CALIFORNIA HISTORICAL SOCIETY
Beginning in January 2014, the University of California Press will publish the first issue of California History under its masthead in association with CHS. Through its continued publication, California History remains an important vehicle for scholarly inquiry and production. The journal—both archived and current content—will still be accessible through JSTOR's online hosting platform. CHS members can subscribe to California History through UC Press at a special CHS membership discount as part of an array of CHS membership benefits.
Under CHS's stewardship, from 1922 to 2013, California History advanced knowledge about the Golden State with articles by leading scholars and writers focusing on California and the West from pre-Columbian to recent times. Compelling essays augmented by content-rich images (many from CHS's own archives), book reviews, features on CHS collections and fine arts photography, and commentary—all illuminate the ongoing dialogue between the past and the present.
Highlights of the journal's ninety-year history include special themed issues devoted to subjects such as El Clamor Público, the crusading Spanish-language Los Angeles newspaper published from 1855 to 1859 (2007); the lyrical, narrative, and influential poet Robinson Jeffers (2010); and the extended commentary and examination of Richard White's bold and controversial book published in 2010, Railroaded: The Transcontinentals and the Making of Modern America (2011)—as well as the California History Sesquicentennial Series.
