Product Details


“Davis’ work is the cruel and perpetual folly of the ruling elites.”
New York Times

“Los Angeles faces a perilous millennium whose emerging contours will surely have no more brilliant prophet or historian than Davis.”
—Alexander Cockburn

“A history as fascinating as it is instructive.”
—Peter Ackroyd, The Times

“At once intensely intellectual and visceral.”
Contemporary Sociology

“Absolutely fascinating.”
—William Gibson

“Even as he offers vivid street-smart reportage (and frequently breathtaking prose), Davis projects a distinctive historical vision.”
—Adam Shatz, Lingua Franca

“Few books shed as much light on their subjects as this opinionated and original excavation of Los Angeles from the mythical debris of its past and future.”
San Francisco Examiner
