Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

"Its intelligent combination of essays reveals much about Los Angeles which does not always find its way into socio-historical texts about the area. The editors' remarks preceding each essay expertly bind the book together. I suspect it will wind up as one of the more dog-eared volumes on my shelf."—Mayor Tom Bradley of Los Angeles

Synopsis:

Los Angeles, City of Angels. A city with a remarkable history, over 200 years old. Interwoven with the Caughey's commentary are over 100 of the choicest essays on Los Angeles. The saga of cowtown turned post-war metropolis unfolds before the reader.
