Review

So many of the people who kept American cities alive and creative through dark decades, when capital abandoned the city, have become victims of capital's recent triumphant return to the city. This beautifully composed and crafted book tells their story. It is a compelling vision of our emerging global culture of displaced persons. --Marshall Berman Hollow City, with its writing as lucid as a clear-flowing stream and its persuasive array of images in decisively brilliant design, lays out just how the 80s and 90s put the real life of the city under siege. --Martha Rosler One day, we all woke up and San Francisco had become a bohemian entertainment park, without bohemians. Those were the golden days of virtual capitalism. Rebecca Solnit and Susan Schwartzenberg help us to understand why this happened. Their book is necessary to understanding our new place in a brand new scary world. --Guillermo Gomez-Pena A place for artists, activists, and working folks: that's what made San Francisco the great city it is. Or was. The city we love is disappearing almost overnight and turning into just another sector of corporate monoculture. This is a terrific book, a passionate collaboration of word and image that surveys the rich urban culture we are losing. --Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Nancy J. Peters ""Hollow City", with its writing as lucid as a clear-flowing stream and its persuasive array of images in decisively brilliant design, lays out just how the 80s and 90s put the real life of the city under siege."--Martha Rosler "So many of the people who kept American cities alive and creative through dark decades, when capital abandoned the city, have become victims of capital's recent triumphant return to the city.
