Brand new books, dispatch from our warehouse in the UK

Book Description&newline;&newline;Los Angeles's history is a story of conflicting visions. Most historians, journalists, and filmmakers have focused on L.A. as a bastion of corporate greed, business boosterism, political corruption, cheap labor, exploited immigrants, and unregulated sprawl. The Next Los Angeles tells a different story: that of the reformers and radicals who have struggled for alternative visions of social and economic justice. The authors chronicle efforts of progressive social movements that worked throughout the twentieth century to create a more livable, just, and democratic Los Angeles. These movements--what the authors call Progressive L.A.--have produced a new kind of labor movement, community-oriented environmentalism, and multi-ethnic coalition politics. This book shows how reformers have fought to transform a city characterized by huge economic disparities, concrete-encased rivers, and an endless landscape of subdivisions, freeways, and malls into a progressive model for regions around the country. &newline;The Next Los Angeles includes a decade-by-decade historical snapshot of the city's progressive social movements and an in-depth exploration of key trends that are remaking L.A. at the beginning of the twenty-first century. It examines L.A.'s changing political landscape, including grassroots initiatives to construct a new agenda for social transformation. At once a history, a policy analysis, and a road map for a progressive future, this book provides an exciting portrayal of a city on the cutting edge of many of the social, economic, and environmental changes sweeping across America.&newline;&newline;&newline;From the Inside Flap&newline;&newline;&doublequote;With this rich account of its community and labor struggles, the city of angels--and apocalypse--becomes the city of hope.&doublequote;--Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America&newline;&doublequote;This wonderful book, with its evocations of LA's alternative histories, and its bold templates for social and environmental justice, is proof that the American Left is alive and well, especially in Southern California.&doublequote;--Mike Davis, author of Dead Cities &newline;&doublequote;A rare book combining history, analysis, strategy and a platform - and it may well be carried out in this decade.&doublequote;--Tom Hayden, former State Senator, Los Angeles
