Port of Los Angeles Conflict, Commerce, and the Fight for Control


With years of research, 200 maps and images, Knatz shapes an insightful story of the Port of Los Angeles, from its early entrepreneurs to the city’s business and political leadership,  and the inevitable conflicts that arose between them. Power moves disguised as bureaucratic banalities, jurisdictional feuds, and outright warfare—it is all here.


RSVP required.
