Whitewashed Adobe: The Rise of Los Angeles and the Remaking of Its Mexican Past

William Deverell
Deverell portrays Los Angeles during the 1850s as a city seething with racial enmity due to the recent war with Mexico. He explains how, within a generation, the city's business interests, looking for a commercially viable way to establish urban identity, borrowed Mexican cultural traditions and put on a carnival called La Fiesta de Los Angeles. He analyzes the subtle ways in which ethnicity came to bear on efforts to corral the unpredictable Los Angeles River and shows how the resident Mexican population was put to work fashioning the modern metropolis.

California, its past history, its present position, its future prospects; containing a history of the country from its colonization by the Spaniards.
