New from UC Press: “Berkeley: A City in History”

From the flap jacket cover:

The Railroad Age, the Depression, World War II, the Atomic Age, the Sixties. These periods shaped and were in turn shaped by Berkeley, California… a city that has had a remarkable influence, given its modest size. This concise book (240 pages) by Berkeley City College professor Charles Wollenberg is a rich chronicle of the people, trends and events that connected the city of Berkeley to much larger themes in history: from the native builders of shellmounds to the blue-collar residents of Ocean View, the rise of the University of California, the World War II shipyards and today’s demographics and politics. 

Berkeley: A City in History is published by UC Press. For more information, visit
