From the Modern Times Bookstore website:

Part history, part memoir, San Francisco’s International Hotel presents the struggle to save the International Hotel in Manilatown, San Francisco. This battle culminated in the 1977 mass eviction of elderly tenant activists. In telling this compelling story, Estella Habal features her own memories of the anti-eviction movement, focusing on the roles of Filipino Americans and their participation in both the anti-eviction protests and the nascent Asian American movement of the time.
