Los Angeles is a place without a sense of place, famous for sprawl and overdevelopment and defined by its car-clogged freeways. It might seem inhospitable to ideas about connecting with nature and community. But in this book, educator and activist Robert Gottlieb describes how imaginative and innovative social movements have coalesced around the issues of water development, cars and freeways, and land use, to create a more livable and sustainable city.
