San Francisco, 1846-1856 FROM HAMLET TO CITY

by Roger W. Lotchin

San Francisco, 1846-1856 FROM HAMLET TO CITY Synopsis

Now back in print with a new introduction by the author, this is the classic study of America's most admired instant city, from its days as a sleepy Mexican village, through the Gold Rush and into its establishment as a major international port. Roger Lotchin examines the urbanizing influences in San Francisco and compares these to other urban centers, doing so against a diverse backdrop of vigilantes, opium dens, and other unforgettable institutions.
