The high tech boom has been a bust for many Bay Area residents. Seminar co-convener Dick Walker discusses this and other contradictions of recent Bay Area economic history in his important new book, “Pictures of a Gone City.” Professor emeritus and former Geography Department chair at UC Berkeley, Walker is the author of several ground-breaking works, including “The Country in the City: The Greening of the San Francisco Bay Area” and “Conquest of Bread: 150 Years of Agribusiness in California.”
The session will be on Thursday, November 15 from 7-9:15 p.m. at the UCB Institute for Research on Labor and Employment, 2521 Channing Way (one-half block east of Telegraph Ave.). Free admission and dinner.
