About this product
- DescriptionLos Angeles is a city which has long thrived on the continual re-creation of its own myth. In this extraordinary work, Norman Klein examines the process of memory erasure in LA. Using a provocative mixture of fact and fiction, the book takes us on an anti-tour of downtown LA, examines life for Vietnamese immigrants in the City of Dreams, imagines Walter Benjamin as a Los Angele, and finally looks at the way information techlogy has recreated the city, turning cyberspace into the last suburb. In this new edition, Norman Klein explores the evolution of the Lati majority, how the Pacific ecomy is changing the structure of urban life, the impact of collapsing infrastructure in the city, and the restructuring of those very districts that had been forgotten .
