Portrait

This is the third book in Philip Fradkin's trilogy on earthquakes. The first two are Magnitude 8: Earthquakes and Life Along the San Andreas Fault (California, 1999) and Wildest Alaska: Journeys of Great Peril in Lituya Bay (California, 2001). Fradkin, who has lived adjacent to the San Andreas Fault for thirty years, is also the author of the acclaimed A River No More (California, 1996) and The Seven States of California (California, 1995), as well as many other books. He shared a Pulitzer Prize while at the Los Angeles Times.

Pressestimmen

"In this richly detailed retelling of the event, Philip Fradkin places that event within the cultural framework of the era, providing evocative descriptions of its immediate impact and the long-running effects it triggered. Whether already well-informed or merely curious, readers will find much new information as well as helpful perspective." - Bloomsbury Review "Fradkin is an impassioned writer who knows his subject.... He writes that he sees his book not just as a history but also as 'a disaster manual for the future.' I respectfully beg to differ. Rather than a manual for the future - of which there is no shortage - Fradkin has given us something much more valuable: a clear-eyed view of our past." - San Francisco Chronicle "A splendidly researched and well-written history of one of this country's great urban disasters.... While most historical accounts deal with the damage from the quake and the ensuing fires, Fradkin takes the reader well beyond the devastation to explore the aftermath, when a San Francisco oligarchy imposed its will on a fractured city and displayed an ugly racism and human nature at its sometimes worst.... With a reporter's eye for detail, Fradkin delivers in a most compelling fashion." - Sacramento Bee"
