Picturing Los Angeles
Picturing Los Angeles is the most comprehensive pictorial history of America's second-largest, and in many ways, most influential city. Lavishly illustrated with more than five hundred and fifty photographs, it is the story of a colorful, complex and often-misunderstood metropolis.
Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmakers and writers Jon and Nancy Wilkman tell a fast-paced story filled with fascinating characters-beginning with the region's Mexican roots and Wild West youth . . . to the water wars of the turn of the twentieth century . . . the birth and influence of the movies . . . the evolution of an automobile-enthralled city, driven by experimentation and a search for personal fulfillment . . . scandals, injustices, and unkept promises . . . the development of a major center of innovation and technology . . . the creation of America's busiest gateway for international trade . . . and the unexpected emergence of the world's most multicultural metropolis.
Los Angeles has been called a mirror to America and a reflection of the future. If you think you know L.A., it's time to look again. From the arts and entertainment, sports, people, politics and social change, there's no better place to discover, or rediscover, the City of Angels than through the wide-ranging pages of Picturing Los Angeles.
