Highly detailed, scholarly work that "delves into the metamorphosis of Orange County, a region often overshadowed by its more glamorous neighbor, Los Angeles. The book meticulously traces the county's evolution from a predominantly agricultural landscape to a sprawling, postsuburban entity. It examines the interplay of socio-political forces, economic imperatives, and cultural shifts that have shaped this transformation. The narrative is punctuated by key events such as the rise of the defense industry, the impact of Disneyland, and the emergence of conservative political movements. Through a blend of historical analysis, case studies, and sociological insight, the book offers a nuanced understanding of how Orange County has come to epitomize the complexities of modern American suburbia." —Bing.
