Description: Here with a new preface, a new foreword, and an updated bibliography is the definitive history of Los Angeles from its beginnings as an agricultural village of fewer than 2,000 people to its emergence as a metropolis of more than 2 million in 1930--a city whose distinctive structure, character, and culture foreshadowed much of the development of urban America after World War II.
