Publisher Comments:

Like The Death and Life of Great American Cities, Solnit and Schwartzenberg report from the front lines of gentrification in San Francisco's Mission District, deploring the skyrocketing rents and corporate greed that may be coming soon to a neighborhood near you.

Synopsis:

Reporting from the front line of gentrification in San Fransisco's Mission District, The author draws on architectural history, urban studies and the images of photographer Susan Schwartzenberg, to project the end of city life for bohemians and its baleful consequences for American culture.

Synopsis:

Writer-historian Rebecca Solnit and photographer Susan Schwartzenberg survey San Francisco's transformation — skyrocketing rents that are driving out artists, activists, nonprofit organizations and the poor; the homogenization of the city's architecture, industries and population; the decay of its public life; and the erasure of its sites of civic memory.

Synopsis:

Reporting from the front lines of gentrification in San Francisco, Rebecca Solnit and Susan Schwartzenberg sound a warning bell to all urban residents. Wealth is just as capable of ravaging cities as poverty.
