"Every Los Angeles-based history, political science, and ethnic or urban studies instructor has been waiting for this anthology. …The book's overarching aims serve to revisit and reenvision L.A.'s early history and prehistory, uncover long-term patterns obscured by earlier episodic treatments, and influence the shaping of the city's future."  (Western Historical Quarterly, 2012)

"Overall, this is a fascinating fractured account of various time periods, events, cultural and ethnic backgrounds, and urban sprawl in a city that has become synonymous with the American Dream." (Philosophy & Religion, November 2010)
