      "breakthrough book" in urban studies by Lingua Franca. He has pioneered

      the use of multimedia for advanced scholarship, publishing the American
      Historical Review's first online-only multimedia essay "Los Angeles and
      the Problem of Urban Historical Knowledge" (2000). He is now leading a
      digital publishing initiative for Cambridge Journals Online. Ethington
      is currently completing his second book, about global political economy,

      racial segregation, visual culture, and the rebuilt spatial environment,

      called Ghost Metropolis: Los Angeles and the Cartography of Time,
      1921-2001. His 1940-2000 census time series maps have been featured in
