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 old sweep with an on-theground research of latest existence during this iconic western suburb. She is especially intrigued via the Valley’s many rural components, akin to dust roads, tack-and-feed shops, horse-keeping districts, citrus groves, and picture ranches. faraway from typical or undeveloped areas, those rural features are, she indicates, the results of planned urbanplanning judgements that experience formed the Valley over the process greater than 100 years.


The Valley’s entwined historical past of city improvement and rural protection has genuine ramifications this 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 enterprises, 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 specific, semirural landscapes along the possibilities afforded by means of 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.
