A People's Guide to Los Angelesoffers a fascinating assortment of eye-opening alternatives to L.A.'s usual tourist destinations. Laura Pulido, Laura Barraclough, and Wendy Cheng document 115 little-known sites in the City of Angels where struggles related to race, class, gender, sexuality, and the environment have occurred. They introduce us to people and events usually ignored by mainstream media and, in the process, create a fresh history of Los Angeles, one built from the bottom up. With its solid grounding in research, this unique resource is both an enjoyable field guide and an accessible education tool. Roughly dividing the city into six regions--North Los Angeles, the Eastside and San Gabriel Valley, South Los Angeles, Long Beach and the Harbor, the Westside, and the San Fernando Valley--this illuminating guide shows how power operates in the shaping of places, and how it remains embedded in the landscape.
