Before L.A. : Race, Space, and Municipal Power in Los Angeles, 1781-1894, Hardback Book

Before L.A. : Race, Space, and Municipal Power in Los Angeles, 1781-1894 Hardback

Part of the The Lamar Series in Western History series

Description

David Torres-Rouff significantly expands borderlands history by examining the past and original urban infrastructure of one of America's most prominent cities; its social, spatial, and racial divides and boundaries; and how it came to be the Los Angeles we know today.

It is a fascinating study of 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.
