Examines the past and original urban infrastructure of Los Angeles; its social, spatial, and racial divides and boundaries; and how it came to be the city we know today. This fascinating study shows how an innovative intercultural community developed along racial lines, and how immigrants from the United States engineered a profound shift in civic ideals and the physical environment, creating a social and spatial rupture that endures to this day.
