From Library Journal Valle (ethnic studies, California Polytechnic State Univ.) and Torres (education, Univ. of California) challenge existing methodologies of defining urban society in terms of race, calling for the construction of a new urban politics based on the commonalities of culture and class. Providing a micro-level analysis of Los Angeles, the authors demonstrate how the city and its neighbors function as private wealth-producing machines without giving money back to the communities whose workers make that revenue possible. They use examples from recent news stories, political encounters, and cultural events to make their case that Latinos are used to maintain the existing power structure and can change things only by understanding and strengthening their global political options. While the book focuses exclusively on the dynamics in Los Angeles (e.g., globalization, immigration, and politics), its argument can be extrapolated to analyze conditions of Latinos in cities across the United States. Geared toward postgraduates in urban studies, this book is recommended for academic libraries.DDeborah Bigelow, Leonia P.L., NJ Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc.
