Book Overview

Mitchell Schwarzer provides an engaging and comprehensive history of Oakland's built environment. Meticulously researched, Hella Town examines the forces that shaped the city's landscape and exposes the structural racism that created and maintained the societal inequities that persist today. The book is a must-read for anyone seeking to better understand this fascinating city.--Libby Schaaf, Mayor of Oakland

Hella Town ambitiously and thoughtfully tells Oakland's history from its cycles of expansion and industrialization to its current landscape of technology startups and gentrifying neighborhoods alongside trenchant poverty and homelessness. It is a must-read for those who want to understand how American cities get built and unbuilt.--Mabel O. Wilson, Professor, Columbia University

An absolutely first-rate work that fills a huge gap in our history. While Silicon Valley rules the internet, San Francisco is world-renowned, and Berkeley symbolizes American radicalism, Oakland is regularly overlooked. This great city deserves its day in the sun for being, again and again, the most dynamic, fascinating, and tragic part of the Bay Area.--Richard Walker, author of Pictures of a Gone City: Tech and the Dark Side of Prosperity in the San Francisco Bay Area

Mitchell Schwarzer's Hella Town reads like a virtual roadmap through the complex web Read More chevron_right
