From the dust jacket- "According to the late David Halberstam, 'No single family has dominated any major region of the country as the Chandlers have dominated Southern California. They did not so much to foster the growth of Los Angeles as invent it.' Based on the PBS documentary of the same name. Inventing L.A. traces the history of the Chandler family, the incredible impact of their Los Angeles Times, and how they shaped the city that many say has reshaped the world."
