Reviews

"This volume of challenging essays . . . usefully steps beyond the usual constraints of urban discourse and analysis, with topics ranging from the evolution of the freeway infrastructure and inequalities among the 36 percent Latino population in the city to the origins of modern fast food at McDonald's San Bernadino drive-in of 1948."--"Architecture Today
