From Chicago to L.A.

Making Sense of Urban Theory

by Dear, Michael

Description

From Chicago to L.A. begins the task of defining an alternative agenda for urban studies and examines the case for shifting the focus of urban studies from Chicago to Los Angeles. The authors, experienced scholars from a variety of disciplines, examine:

  • The concepts that have blocked our understanding of Southern California cities
  • The imaginative structures that people have been using to understand and explain Los Angeles
  • The utility of the "Los Angeles School" of urbanism
