Focusing on Ways to Make the Regional Process Work Better
Regions aroused focuses on practical solutions to congestion, inadequate housing, poor education, and mounting health and environmental problems in Los Angeles. The author based this fictionalized account on his own behind-the-scenes participation in political struggles among the region’s leaders. Filled with passion for making the region more livable, the story plays out from the state legislature to citizen forums in individual cities, neighborhoods, and sub-regions. It grippingly portrays the forces of political intrigue, romance, betrayal, honor, and integrity that infuse public actions. In the 1999-2002 regional planning process recounted, the main characters rise above their political, professional, and personal tribulations to create a better Regions Aroused. The coverage and proposed solutions also apply to the 100-plus regions shown on the book’s cover.
