Question Description

Hi! I need help witting this short paper on the history of Los Angeles. The question is pretty straight forward you just have to read the assigned reading for this week and find examples that support your thesis. I will give a tip to A paper! In paragraph citations please!!

The readings this week all focus on, among other things, building projects in postwar Los Angeles. Eric Avila discusses the construction of Disneyland and Dodger Stadium, and John McPhee discusses the building of an elaborate system of debris basins to defend the city from the mountains to the east. (Of course, a significant amount of destruction preceded and accompanied all this construction.) In different ways, all this building was meant to provide order, predictability, and safety to the city and its surrounding areas.

In your Reading Response this week, I would like you to reflect on these efforts by addressing some or all of these questions (as always, in a way that you see fit): How would you rate the success of these building projects in delivering order, predictability, and safety to Los Angeles’s residents? Why did they succeed or why did they fail? Alternatively, for whom did they deliver these results, and for whom did they not? Address these questions in a short paper of 750-1000 words that includes specific, cited evidence from at least two of the three assigned chapters (two chapters in Avila and the article by McPhee).
