By the end of the 20th century, Los Angeles had become the biggest multicultural center in the nation boasting an extraordinary racial diversity. The authors of the essays in City of Promise, drawing upon a wide range of primary and secondary materials, provide a rich description and discussion of this monumental development. They show that nonwhite newcomers withstood much discrimination, formed a variety of cultural and social institutions, established permanent communities, and gained political power. The result is an addition to the understanding of the history of race and race relations in Los Angeles and the urban American West.
