Features an essay on the events surrounding and following the 1906 earthquake. This book also includes a lyrical essay that considers the meaning of ruins, resurrection, and the evolving geography and history of San Francisco.



"After the Ruins, 1906 and 2006" features a vivid essay by noted environmental historian Philip Fradkin on the events surrounding and following the 1906 earthquake, which he describes as 'the equivalent of an intensive, three-day bombing raid, complete with many tons of dynamite that acted as incendiary devices.' A lyrical essay by acclaimed writer Rebecca Solnit considers the meaning of ruins, resurrection, and the evolving geography and history of San Francisco.
