Imperial San Francisco: Urban Power, Earthly Ruin
Gray Brechin (au)
In this intriguing book, Gray Brechin, a historical geographer who received his Ph.D. in Geography from UC-Berkeley, provides a myth-shattering interpretation of the hidden costs that the growth of San Francisco has exacted on its surrounding regions. Along the way he presents a revolutionary new theory of urban development. Written in a lively, accessible style, the narrative is filled with vivid characters, engrossing stories & a rich variety of illustrations. Brechin advances a new way of understanding urban history as he traces the links among environment, economy, & technology that led ultimately to the atom bomb & the nuclear arms race. The book is filled with interesting nuggets of history discovered by Brechin inside the UC archives.
