Editorial Reviews

Review

"With this rich account of its community and labor struggles, the city of angels - and apocalypse - becomes the city of hope." - Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed "This wonderful book is proof that the American Left is alive and well, especially in Southern California." - Mike Davis, author of Dead Cities "An intelligent insider's account of the construction of the Progressive Los Angeles Network, or PLAN, and the emergence of a powerful labor-Latino bloc that provides progressive L.A. with much of its heart and soul.... A good starting point for any serious student of forward-looking municipal politics." - James Goodno, San Francisco Chronicle "Far and away the best single book for understanding the politics of Los Angeles." - Randy Shaw, Beyondchron.org"

From the Inside Flap

"With this rich account of its community and labor struggles, the city of angels--and apocalypse--becomes the city of hope."--Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America

"This wonderful book, with its evocations of LA's alternative histories, and its bold templates for social and environmental justice, is proof that the American Left is alive and well, especially in Southern California."--Mike Davis, author of Dead Cities

"A rare book combining history, analysis, strategy and a platform - and it may well be carried out in this decade."--Tom Hayden, former State Senator, Los Angeles

Excellent introduction to the ills facing Los Angeles. A good overview of potential solutions being offered by various community and social organizations.

Format: Paperback
This book is poorly written and an absolute chore to read. On any given page, a tiny bit of useful information is buried under a pile of extravagant vocabulary, which is generally confusing and completely pointless but I'm sure serves some author's inflated ego quite well.

Detestable that somebody finds this appropriate as a textbook.
