Most widely held works by Greg Hise
Land of sunshine : an environmental history of metropolitan Los Angeles( )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Working forward from ancient times and ancient ecologies to the very recent past, Land of Sunshine is an exploration of the environmental history of greater Los Angeles. Rather than decrying the lost opportunities of "roads not taken," these essays, by nineteen leading geologists, ecologists, and historians, instead consider the changing dynamics both of the city and of nature." "The result is a portrait of Los Angeles that will serve planners, communities, and environmentalists as they look to the past for clues, if not blueprints, for enhancing the quality and viability of cities."--Jacket
Magnetic Los Angeles : planning the twentieth-century metropolis by Greg Hise( Book )

24 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book has three aims. First, it places the history of city building in southern California in a national context. Second, it explains the changing form of American cities during the twentieth-century using Los Angeles as a primary case study. Where other accounts focus exclusively on housing and home building, this book reveals a major rearrangement of urban functions and the concomitant dispersion of industry and commerce. The third, most ambitious, intention is to uncover and interpret the imaginative structures residents and scholars have devised for understanding American cities and thereby contribute to a reframing of current debates in urban theory

Eden by design : the 1930 Olmsted-Bartholomew plan for the Los Angeles region by Greg Hise( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1930 the Olmosted Brothers and Bartholomew and Associates submitted a report, "Parks, Playgrounds, and Beaches in the Los Angeles Region," to the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce. The plan is a model of ambitious, intelligent, sensitive planning, but after a flurry of enthusiasm in the newspapers, it dropped from sight and no action was taken on its proposals. In this book Greg Hise and William Deverell examine the reasons it was called for, analyze why it failed, and open a discussion about the future of urban public space. In addition to their introduction and a facsimile reproduction of the report, Eden by Design includes a dialogue between Hise, Deverell, and widely admired landscape architect Laurie Olin that illuminates the significance of the Olmsted-Bartholomew report and places it in the history of American landscape planning. Book jacket."--Jacket
