Description:

A new looking book and D.J. that is signed y the author. In 1882, when General Harrison Gray Otis began working for the paper that was to become the Los Angeles Times, the city of Los Angeles was still a sleepy little town with fewer than a hundred thousand residents. However, Otis was the first of a dynasty of men to build what would later become a world-renowned and award-winning newspaper. Created as the companion book to the Peter Jones Productions documentary film, this book tells the century-long story of Los Angeles most famous family and their dominion over the Times, as they worked to create a city of international fame.

Synopsis: "Inventing L.A.: The Chandlers and Their Times" is the tale of the Chandlers family's reign over L.A. with the help of their mighty scepter, the Times, and their entwinement with politics, family feud, and fortune. This is truly the story of the buildingof one of the most famous, populated, and culturally rich cities in the world"--Provided by publisher.

From the Inside Flap: The story of Inventing L.A. follows the history of the paper as it was passed down from the hands of General Harrison Gray Otis, to his son-in-law, Harry Chandler, to Norman Chandler, and finally to Otis Chandler. With each generation, the paper changed more and more, from a paper used to win support for the family's own interests (such as keeping labor unions out of Southern California, the creation of the Los Angeles Harbor, and the election of Richard Nixon) to a more unbiased and representative journalistic icon on par with the New York Times and the Washington Post.

Inventing L.A.: The Chandlers and Their Times is the tale of the Chandlers' reign over Los Angeles with the help of their mighty scepter, the Times, and their entwinement with politics, family feud, and fortune. This is truly the story of the building of one of the most famous, populated, and culturally rich cities in the world.
