Fortress California, 1910-1961 from warfare to welfare

Analyzing the growth of Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco from 1910 to 1961, the author discredits the assumption that the industrialization of the Sunbelt was a result of a partnership between industry and the military. He argues that municipalities used federal resources to build urban empires and metropolitan-military complexes.
