What is included with this book?
Los Angeles is now known as a world city characterized by multiculturalism and globalization. Yet less than a century ago, its political leaders proudly proclaimed themselves white supremacists. In The Shifting Grounds of Race, Scott Kurashige highlights the role African Americans and Japanese Americans played in the social and political struggles that remade twentieth-century Los Angeles.
Scott Kurashige is associate professor of history, American culture, and Asian/Pacific Islander American studies at the University of Michigan.
