In the 1st book-length scholarly learn of the San Fernando Valley—home to one-third of the inhabitants of Los Angeles—Laura R. Barraclough combines bold ancient sweep with an on-theground research of up to date existence during this iconic western suburb. She is very intrigued via the Valley’s many rural parts, equivalent to airborne dirt and dust roads, tack-and-feed shops, horse-keeping districts, citrus groves, and picture ranches. faraway from normal or undeveloped areas, those rural features are, she exhibits, the results of planned urbanplanning judgements that experience formed the Valley over the process greater than 100 years.

 

The Valley’s entwined background of city improvement and rural protection has genuine ramifications this present day for styles of racial and sophistication inequality and particularly for the evolving which means of whiteness. Immersing herself in conferences of householders’ institutions, equestrian agencies, and redistricting committees, Barraclough uncovers the racial biases embedded in rhetoric approximately “open area” and “western heritage.” The Valley’s city cowboys get pleasure from particular, semirural landscapes along the possibilities afforded via one of many world’s biggest towns. regardless of this enviable place, they've got at their disposal robust articulations of either white victimization and, with little contradiction, color-blind politics.
