San Francisco: A Cultural and Literary History: Cities of the Imagination
Mick Sinclair (au); Sedge Thomson (fr)
Within a generation San Francisco grew from an isolated Mexican trading post into America’s major Pacific coast city. Here, Sinclair explores gold-rush San Francisco & the early free-for-all that led to corruption & public hangings. From the 19th-century mansions of Nob Hill & the Barbary Coast with its spiked drinks, he charts the 1950s San Francisco Poetry Renaissance that sired the Beat Generation. Through lit., music & pop culture, he considers the rise of Berkeley’s student activism, the genesis of hippie culture & Haight-Ashbury’s legendary Summer of Love. Explaining how the Castro became the world’s most famous gay neighborhood, he also reveals how a booming Internet economy transformed & then threatened to destroy the city. Illustrations.
