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.

In a dust jacket, with creasing to the edges, mild rubbing to the surface, and areas of toning. May require extra postage due to weight. From the dust jacket- "According to the late David Halberstam, 'No single family has dominated any major region of the country as the Chandlers have dominated Southern California. They did not so much to foster the growth of Los Angeles as invent it.' Based on the PBS documentary of the same name. Inventing L.A. traces the history of the Chandler family, the incredible impact of their Los Angeles Times, and how they shaped the city that many say has reshaped the world.".
