Surveying the transformation of San Francisco in the early millenium by Silicon Valley, Solnit explores the impact of skyrocketing rents, architectural homogenisation, and the links between artists and gentrification. Wealth, she argues, is just as capable of ravaging cities as poverty. Schwartzenberg 's photographs memorialise San Francisco 's vanishing spaces of civic memory and public life. Both a portrait of an acute crisis and a call to defend collective public life, Hollow City makes a fervent case for the imaginative potential of cities.
