Inland Shift

The chapter begins by describing the landscape of the Inland Empire and by examining the role that it has played as a development region for metropolitan Los Angeles. It also shows how the Kaiser mill contributed to the territorialization of new racial and class relations that shaped the region’s politics long after the mill had succumbed to global restructuring. Inland California provides an example of what happened to suburbs in the United States during the transition from a postwar Keynesian spatial order to one based on flexible accumulation. This includes a series of racial migrations, from white migrants during the postwar period to Latinx migrants during the 1990s and 2000s. Chapter 7 includes an account of the sometimes-violent tension that gripped the region’s politics during the transition from a mostly white to a mostly Latinx population.
