5.0 out of 5 stars Distressing look at killing a great city's soul, 22 Jan 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Hollow City: Gentrification and the Eviction of Urban Culture (Haymarket) (Hardcover)
This is an excellent and timely (late-2000) treatise on how San Francisco is being transformed, and not for the better, by the dot-com influx, chain stores, and other new-wave homogenizations. Ms Solnit focuses on the negative impacts upon the poor and the artists and artisans being forced out by spiralling housing costs and the destruction of old, vibrant neighborhoods. There are undoubtedly parallels here with the recent history of London. This book is a must-read for anyone who cares about the future of our cities.
