Most widely held works by Greg Hise
Magnetic Los Angeles : planning the twentieth-century metropolis by Greg Hise( Book )
17 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book has three aims. First, it places the history of city building in southern California in a national context. Second, it explains the changing form of American cities during the twentieth-century using Los Angeles as a primary case study. Where other accounts focus exclusively on housing and home building, this book reveals a major rearrangement of urban functions and the concomitant dispersion of industry and commerce. The third, most ambitious, intention is to uncover and interpret the imaginative structures residents and scholars have devised for understanding American cities and thereby contribute to a reframing of current debates in urban theory

Land of sunshine : an environmental history of metropolitan Los Angeles ( Book )
6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Working forward from ancient times and ancient ecologies to the very recent past, Land of Sunshine is an exploration of the environmental history of greater Los Angeles. Rather than decrying the lost opportunities of "roads not taken," these essays, by nineteen leading geologists, ecologists, and historians, instead consider the changing dynamics both of the city and of nature." "The result is a portrait of Los Angeles that will serve planners, communities, and environmentalists as they look to the past for clues, if not blueprints, for enhancing the quality and viability of cities."--BOOK JACKET
