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.
