Los Angeles, globalization, urbanization, and social struggles
This book combines a historical narrative of urbanisation in Los Angeles with an examination of its changing social geography. It provides a solid base from which to understand and explore the city further and a defined emphasis on recent developments. It focuses on the role of local actors in the globalisation of Los Angeles and traces the ways in which local states, boosters, labour unions, social movements, neighbourhood and community organisations and other agents participate in negotiated world city formation.
