About the Author
William Fulton is an urban planning expert and the editor and publisher of California Planning & Development Report and author of The Regional City: Planning for the End of Sprawl (with Peter Calthorpe), Guide to California Planning, and California: Land and Legacy.
"A surprisingly lively case study of the battles and alliances of politics, business and people that formed--or deformed--a great American city."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"One of the most entertaining and thought-provoking books I have read in a long time about urban growth and change... Important reading for anyone interested in contemporary urban development. [Fulton] tells a story that may sound uniquely Los Angeles, but really applies to every growing city in America."--Richard Peiser "APA Journal "
