“The Great Los Angeles Swindle is a saga of the roaring twenties, with its glorification of business, its get-rich-quick mentality, and its paucity of government regulation, which bred speculation, corruption, and corporate chaos through the nation in a manner not dissimilar to the financial chicanery of our own era.” -from the dust jacket.
