This second volume in Kevin Starr's passionate and ambitious cultural history of the Golden State focuses on the turn-of-the-century years and the emergence of Southern California as a regional culture in its own right. "How hauntingly beautiful, how replete with lost possibilities, seems that Southern California of two and three generations ago, now that a dramatically diferent society has emerged in its place," writes Starr. As he recreates the "lost California," Starr examines the rich variety of elements that figured in the growth of the Southern California way of life: the Spanish/Mexican roots, the fertile land, the Mediterranean-like climate, the special styles in architecture, the rise of Hollywood. He gives us a broad array of engaging (and often eccentric) characters: from Harrision Gray Otis to Helen Hunt Jackson to Cecil B. DeMille. Whether discussing the growth of winemaking or the burgeoning of reform movements, Starr keeps his central theme in sharp focus: how Californians defined their identity to themselves and to the nation.

Sixteen essays by a group of emerging and established international scholars examine Paris as a thriving transnational arts community during a period of burgeoning global immigration. They address the experiences of important modern artists as well as foreign exiles, immigrants, students and expatriates within the larger trends of international mobility. In doing so, they explore the structures that permitted foreign artists to forge connections within and across national communities and contribute to the development of a hybrid and multivalent modern art.

Los Angeles was founded in 1781 as one of the two original Spanish pueblos in California. With statehood in 1851, the Anglo influx from the eastern United States began to create an American metropolis, but the city retained its diverse character in its architecture and its people. By 1945, the small town that had begun with 28 square miles in the late 19th century had grown to 450 square miles through almost 100 annexations. Businessmen constructed a downtown streetscape whose architecture elicited envy in other cities, hotels catered to visitors with such enthusiasm that guests eventually returned with ambitious schemes of their own, and the construction of an elaborate freeway system made Los Angeles a drive-in city.--From publisher description.
