While most historians, journalists, and filmmakers have focused on Los Angeles as a bastion of corporate greed, business boosterism, political corruption, cheap labor, exploited immigrants, and unregulated sprawl, "The Next Los Angeles" tells a different story: that of the reformers and radicals who have struggled for alternative visions of social and economic justice. In a new preface, the authors reflect on the gathering momentum of L.A.'s progressive movement, including the 2005 landslide victory of Antonio Villaraigosa as mayor.

"With this rich account of its community and labor struggles, the city of angels - and apocalypse - becomes the city of hope." - Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed "This wonderful book is proof that the American Left is alive and well, especially in Southern California." - Mike Davis, author of Dead Cities "An intelligent insider's account of the construction of the Progressive Los Angeles Network, or PLAN, and the emergence of a powerful labor-Latino bloc that provides progressive L.A. with much of its heart and soul.... A good starting point for any serious student of forward-looking municipal politics." - James Goodno, San Francisco Chronicle "Far and away the best single book for understanding the politics of Los Angeles." - Randy Shaw, Beyondchron.org"
