    The title refers to the dual nature of Misrach's desert cantos, as well as its ability to simultaneously attract and anger his audience. While beautiful and poetic, his photographs of the desert reveal destruction resulting from bomb tests, atomic radiation, and military games. Two introductory essays "A Problem of Beauty" by Tucker, the curator of photography at The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, and "Scapeland" by Rebecca Solnit provide background for both the artist and the desert. Also included are a chronology and a photographic timeline. 12x11" Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

    "At last a field book with the sense of San Francisco--the non sense, the real sense, the mysteries of the microclimates, gays and butterflies, gangs, boulevards and mysterious alleys. All here!"--Michael McClure"Downright near infinite, at any rate, the good fortune of a city blessed with such antic chroniclers as Rebecca Solnit, First Citizen of the Imagination, and her entire splendid crew. There's one map missing, though, from this marvelous little volume: the MRI of any reader lucky enough to wander into its myriad graven precincts--synapses firing, dendrites scintillating away, a whole mad happy carnival of fresh neuronal associations."--Lawrence Weschler, author of Everything that Rises: A Book of Convergences "Solnit's writing is born of intense reverie and deep reading, passionate inquiry and political defiance; she is a lyric questor for the texture of everyday life, and she attends to places and to their variety and particularity with an exhilarating form of attention that illuminates and transforms her subjects. Infinite City is a marvellous atlas, a new approach to history-making and storytelling; it's also a highly original praise song to many San Franciscos, a multi-layered and polyphonic testament, alert to the play of detail and to the grand design, to the shadows of memory that fall, the restless shifts in the urban scene and the vital energy of overlooked subjectivities."--Marina Warner

    A National book Critics Circle Award Finalist. The story of Muybridge - who in 1872 succeeded in capturing high-speed motion photographically, thus making movies possible - becomes a lens for a larger story about the transformation of time and space by railroads, telegraphy, photography, and myriad other contributions to the acceleration and industrialization of everyday life. Solnit shows how the peculiar freedoms and opportunities of post-Civil War California led directly to the two industries - Hollywod and Silcon Valley - that have most powerfully defined contemporary life. Notes, Photograph Credits, Index. B&W illus. 305p.

    From dawn to dusk on November 30, 1999, tens of thousands of people shut down the World Trade Organization meeting, facing cops firing tear gas and rubber bullets, the National Guard, and the suspension of civil liberties. An unexpected history was launched from the streets of Seattle, one in which popular power would matter as much as corporate power, in which economics assumed center stage, and people began envisioning who else they could be and what else their economies and societies might look like.The Battle of the Story of the Battle of Seattle explores how that history itself has become a battleground and how our perception of it shapes today's movements against corporate capitalism and for a better world.
