[just minor handling wear to both book and jacket]. (Americans and the California Dream) Series (B&W photographs) The second volume in the author's "passionate and ambitious cultural history of the Golden State . . . focuses on the turn-of-the-century years and, in particular, the emergence of Southern California as a regional culture in its own right. [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 and literature, the rise of Hollywood. Combining deep research with a lively style, Starr deftly intertwines discussions of politics, art, literature, banking, business, and agriculture."
