Los Angeles by Night is a sourcebook for Vampire: The Masquerade about the chaotic state of L.A.'s kindred society since the Second Anarch Revolt drove the Camarilla out and left the Anarchs to form a government that developed into little better than packs of Cainite street gangs.
From the White Wolf Catalog:
Chapter One: The Big Orange
The standard introduction, including suggestions for book usage, an overview of the current political stances of the Camarilla, Sabbat, Anarchs, and the four independent clans, notes on the Garou and the mages of Los Angeles, information on mortal Los Angeles, and suggested reading, viewing, and listening for a proper mood.
Chapter Two: History
When the white man took over what was to become Los Angeles from the peaceful Gabrielinos Native Americans, significant events were set into motion. When the first kindred Christopher Houghton arrived in 1828, all hell broke loose. However, Houghton began using his power and influence to build the city into its modern form, including developing its fledgling film industry. An exiled Brujah, Jeremy MacNeil, arrived and convinced Houghton to the Anarch cause; however, the figurehead Prince Houghton had put into power would not allow it. In 1944, MacNeil finally gathered enough Anarchs to kill the city's elders, including the Prince. The Anarchs have since held the city... but for how much longer?
Chapter Three: Geography
The mortal geography of Los Angeles, and the Kindred and Garou territories within.
Chapter Four: The Damned
Notes on each of the clans with power within Los Angeles, including the Brujah, Caitiff, Malkavians, Nosferatu, Toreador, and Ventrue, as well as a few powerful Followers of Set, Lasombra, and Ravnos.
Chapter Five: The Politics of Anarchy
Details on Kindred gang life in Los Angeles, threats within and outside of the city, and how the Anarch Free State is run.
