About this book
Subtitled, "Excavating The Future In Los Angeles". A new and fully updated edition of Mike Davis' visionary, bestselling work, about the transformation of Los Angeles and the modern city in general.
Reconstructs Los Angeles's shadow history and dissects its ethereal economy. This work tells us who has the power and how they hold on to it. It gives us a city of Dickensian extremes, Pynchonesque conspiracies, and a desperation straight out of Nathaniel West.
