Summary
With sharp historical perspective, Making a Better World traces the rise and fall of a public housing ethic in Los Angeles and its impact on the city's built environment. Don Parson's examination not only gives us the recent history of a city but also opens up a new debate on a current national crisis in providing shelter for low-income Americans
