Geography Of Fear / Mike Davis. - Mike Davis, author of City of Quartz, presents his analysis of the relationship between how Los Angeles is organized geographically to the relation of various racial and ethnic groups. At the center of the city lie banks and financial isntitutions. In the next ring property values decline dramatically, with working families occuping the third ring. Overlaying this economic structure, Davis argues, is an ethinic/racial structure. Where one live in Los Angeles determines the quality and nature of life, and the city government is passing laws which codify this socio-economic reality. - RECORDED: Los Angeles, 14 Oct. 1993.
