This book explains how the City of Angels became the capital city of the world's leading incarcerator. Marshaling more than two centuries of evidence, historian Kelly Lytle Hernandez unmasks how histories of native elimination, immigrant exclusion, and black disappearance drove the rise of incarceration in Los Angeles. In this telling, which spans from the Spanish colonial era to the outbreak of the 1965 Watts Rebellion, Hernandez documents the persistent historical bond between the racial fantasies of conquest, namely its settler colonial form, and the eliminatory capacities of incarceration.But City of Inmates is also a chronicle of resilience and rebellion, documenting how targeted peoples and communities have always fought back. They busted out of jail, forced Supreme Court rulings, advanced revolution across bars and borders, and, as in the summer of 1965, set fire to the belly of the city. With these acts those who fought the rise of incarceration in Los Angeles altered the course of history in the city, the borderlands, and beyond. This book recounts how the dynamics of conquest met deep reservoirs of rebellion as Los Angeles became the City of Inmates, the nation's carceral core. It is a story that is far from over....

    Kelly Lytle Hernandez has given us a gift. A history of incarceration as elimination in what we call the City of Angels. A history and a call to action. If every American could read this book, could hear the Call to end the settler mentality of taking from and eliminating. If every American could read the stories of ordinary folks who resisted, rebelled, who rose to the challenges and faced down corruption, faced down humiliation, faced down pure greed and malice from so-called elites. Not only an excellent history, written with devotion, but a call to all those who resist injustice and inequality. Powerful. Strong prose.Highly highly recommend.Read this book.
