Synopsis: Power - how it is created, how it has been and is being used - is at the heart of THINKING BIG, the first book to tell the story of the Los Angeles Times and its critical role in the explosion of a small cattle town into the nation's second-largest metropolis. We see in detail how the legendary Harrison Gray Otis, Harry Chandler, and their cohorts first orchestrated the development of Southern California. This involved the manipulation of scarce water resources, the boldest kind of land speculation, promotion of the freeway system and the automobile culture, and their control of the police forces - all bolstered by political clout stemming from the making or breaking of candidates through their newspaper.
