9780520213135: The City: Los Angeles and Urban Theory at the End of the Twentieth Century

Los Angeles has grown from a scattered collection of towns and villages to one of the largest megacities in the world. In the process, it has inspired controversy among critics and scholars, as well as among its residents. Seeking original perspectives rather than consensus, the editors of The City have assembled a variety of essays examining the built environment and human dynamics of this extraordinary modern city, emphasizing the dramatic changes that have occurred since 1960. Together the essays—by experts in urban planning, architecture, geography, and sociology—create a new kind of urban analysis, one that is open to diversity but strongly committed to collective theoretical and practical understanding.

Review:

"This volume of challenging essays . . . usefully steps beyond the usual constraints of urban discourse and analysis, with topics ranging from the evolution of the freeway infrastructure and inequalities among the 36 percent Latino population in the city to the origins of modern fast food at McDonald's San Bernadino drive-in of 1948."--"Architecture Today
