I am doing some research on the history of the LA working class movement and i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on things to read. I am a medical outreach worker but I am also a socialist and plan on using this information for a presentation in LA where I live. If anyone has any articles or books I can look up I woudl really appreciate it. I already have MIke Davis' City of Quartz and I found another on the by Perry and Perry but that only goes to 1941. 
If anyone has any suggestions please let me know.
Michele
