Shameful Victory

The Los Angeles Dodgers, the Red Scare, and the Hidden History of Chavez Ravine

The University of Arizona Press

Enhancing our understanding of the Mexican American experience and urban renewal in LA, Shameful Victory focuses on Chavez Ravine and the eventual building of Dodger Stadium at the expense of the community. Author John H. M. Laslett shows how urban renewal led to the eviction of Mexican Americans and the introduction of the Dodgers, placing the Chavez Ravine affair into a broader social and historical context.
