About this book

&i;`The report is not only a vital document in the history of Los Angeles...but a lost classic of a neglected golden age of city planning and landscape architecture...It embodies a truly regional perspective; an ecological perspective; a long-range vision; an integration of design with finance and administration; and a truly grand interpretation of public space. It deserves to be known to every serious student of the American planning tradition.'&o; Robert Fishman, author of &i;Bougeois Utopias: The Rise and Fall of Surburbia&o;
