Abstract

518 SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA QUARTERLY school segregation before Soria, the lawsuit was also significant for its role in plan- ning desegregation after 1974. This is a question that recent scholars of the anti- busing movement have begun to examine. As David Garc´ıa has shown in Strategies of Segregation, oral history interviews with Mexican American students from Oxnard, California, would add important perspectives to the ongoing efforts to create and maintain racially integrated schools. Zevi Getfreund is Assistant Professor of History at LSU where he teaches courses in U.S. History and co-directs the concentration in Secondary Education. His publications include articles about immigration in the American West and teacher’s guides published by the National Center for history in the Schools at UCLA. His book Speaking American: Language Education and Citizenship in Twentieth Century Los Angeles, will be published by the University of Oklahoma Press in February 2019. CITY OF DREAMS: Dodger Stadium and the Birth of Modern Los Angeles by Jerald Podair (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2017, 384 pp. $32.95, hardcover). Reviewed by Neil Sullivan.
