Coast of Dreams: A History of Contemporary California

 
9780141021027: Coast of Dreams: A History of Contemporary California

"Coast of Dreams" is an astonishingly rich, thoughtful, entertaining and horrifying account of one of the most mesmerising places on earth. Kevin Starr's marvellous new book allows its readers both to revel in the Californian oddness but also to see the magic that has drawn in millions of people like bodybuilder-turned actor-turned-Governor Schwarzenegger. Yet the picture that emerges is a troubled one: of a state which continues to have awe-inspiring potential but which must also face up to problems of a similarly epic scale.
