Up Against the Sprawl Public Policy and the Making of Southern California. Jennifer Wolch, Manuel Pastor Jr., and Peter Dreier, Eds.. University of Minnesota Press, Minneapolis, 2004. 423 pp. $74.95. ISBN 0-8166-4297-4. Paper, $24.95. ISBN 0-8166-4298-2.

Examining the sprawling evolution of Los Angeles, the contributors argue that government agencies and public policies--on the local, state, and federal levels--dictated many aspects of the region's growth and can help shape future changes in the metropolis.
