Los Angeles A to Z: An Encyclopedia of the City and County. By Leonard Pitt, Dale Pitt. “Los Angeles cannot be contained by any one description or category. Thanks to the ancient miracle of the alphabet, to their wide-ranging scholarship, and to their personal knowledge of this distinctive city, Leonard and Dale Pitt have come as close as anyone to squeezing the breathtaking variety of this multitudinous, complex city between the covers of one book. An exemplary aspect of the encyclopedia is its inclusiveness. Serious researchers will fast find themselves sidetracked into the seemingly inexhaustible details and trivia found in this volume. “—Melissa Rae Root, “American Reference Books Annual”. Few cities captivate the imagination as does Los Angeles. It is the locus of spectaculars: movies, earthquakes, freeways, riots, sunsets. In this fascinating desk reference, Leonard and Dale Pitt have gathered a sweeping array of information on the City of Angels. Bolstering their historical and humanistic approach with scientific and technical information, the Pitts include alphabetically arranged entries on history, geography, automobile culture, sports, movies, current events, architecture, flora, fauna, scandals, biography, the arts, politics, neighborhoods, and ethnic, racial, and religious groups. Quotations throughout provide provocative and amusing tidbits about the city that has been called “the fulfillment of the American Dream. ” Copiously illustrated and wonderfully anecdotal, this is a book for anyone with a question, large or small, about Los Angeles. “It’s a great place to live, but I wouldn’t want to visit there. “—Mark Twain “At heart, Los Angeles is a vast cross-section of the Corn Belt set down incongruously in a Maxfield Parrish setting. “—Irwin S. Cobb “Hollywood is wonderful. Anyone who doesn’t like it is either crazy or sober. “—Raymond Chandler “Great weather and automobiles. “—Jamal Wilkes. Dale Pitt is a freelance writer, editor, and indexer. [This] encyclopedia reflects the multiethnic population that has always constituted Los Angeles and provides current interpretations of each subject. Entries include short histories of ethnic communities and astute accounts of significant streets, neighborhoods, and adjoining cities. “–“The Journal of American History.
