This book "offers an insider's view of the first school in the University of California system. The Beaux-Arts master plan by John Galen Howard created a classic setting for early buildings by Bernard Maybeck, Julia Morgan, and Greene & Greene, and later buildings by John Carl Warnecke, Edward Larrabee Barnes, Charles Moore, Donlyn Lyndon, William Turnbull, and landscape architecture by Lawrence Halprin. The campus is unique for its breadth of architectural works by California designers. [This book], featuring over 100 buildings, is fascinating to read and an easy-to-use companion for a walking tour. With a foreword by Berkeley's Chancellor Robert M. Berdahl, and striking photographs by author Harvey Helfand, this is the definitive guide to the history and architecture of the first public institution of higher learning in California"--Inside front cover.

Das Ende des amerikanischen Traums Nach einer Folge von verheerenden Naturkatastrophen stehen die Vereinigten Staaten am Rande des Zusammenbruchs. Im politischen Vakuum gehen Armut und Terror Hand in Hand. Wer Geld hat, flüchtet und verbarrikadiert sich in Gated-Communitys. Die Übrigen haben nur eine Chance zu überleben – Flucht in die Wildnis. So auch das junge Paar Cal und Frida. Nur mit dem Nötigsten brechen sie auf und finden am Rande eines Waldes in einer kleinen Hütte Unterschlupf. Als Frida bemerkt, dass sie schwanger ist, könnte das der schönste Moment ihres Lebens sein. Stattdessen hat sie panische Angst. Als sie und Cal von einer geheimen Kommune namens The Land erfahren, keimt Hoffnung auf. Doch die Bewohner von The Land haben ein dunkles Geheimnis, das nicht nur Frida und Cal betrifft, sondern vor allem ihr ungeborenes Kind. Wie weit darf man gehen, um den zu schützen, den man liebt? California führt in eine Zukunft, die viel näher ist, als uns lieb sein kann, und erschafft ein bedrückend erhellendes Panorama der Menschlichkeit unter extremen Bedingungen. „Eines der Bücher, das sie dieses Jahr lesen MÜSSEN.“ Huffington Post „In ihrem atemberaubenden Debütroman erschafft Edan Lepucki eine satte, sehr realistische und hochkomplexe Zukunftsvision, deren Dramatik sie meisterhaft ausschöpft.“ Jennifer Egan „Was Edan Lepuckis Roman so fantastisch macht ist, dass ihre Überlebenskünstler uns nicht nur ähneln, sie sind wir, in ihrer Besonderheit und in ihren Dilemmas.“ Michael Specktor

This is a complete, systematic treatment of the marine algae (seaweeds) flora of California. The 726 species treated are each illustrated by a detailed line drawing made from an actual specimen. The two authors have drawn upon their phycological research to offer a definitive representation of benthic marine algae from the Californian coast. The floristic treatment in this first paperback edition should aid accurate and speedy identification of flora due to the improved keys, descriptions, illustrations and more detailed coverage of taxa, and should enhance the reader's knowledge of Californian macro-algae.

Jan Friedman''s Eccentric America proved that the most unlikely events and landmarks could become tourist attractions. This new title is dedicated to the sheer lunacy of California and its citizens, covering the biggest, the best, the wackiest and weirdest of the state''s people and places. From art-car and golf-cart parades to the Valentine''s Day Sex Tour at the San Francisco Zoo; from a festival that moons Amtrak to a town with its own language; from obsessed collectors of Pez, yo-yos, and bananas to kitschy theme motels and a man who built a three-story mountain out of hay, adobe, and old paint. Eccentric California takes an in-depth look at one very peculiar place. This guide features:

Baja California Adventures

The stories featured in Baja California Adventures take place during a span of almost sixty years of travel in the rugged, parched yet hauntingly attractive peninsula. The author kept detailed notes on most of his trips, then fleshed out this skeleton in a narrative which places the reader in the role of participant in the adventure. Thus one feels the bite of the 4WD tires into the desert sand, newly hard-packed by the moisture of a quick-moving thunderstorm. The author describes the excitement of finding Indian petroglyphs, arrowheads or clay ollas in remote canyons. Because Mr. Tiscareño is also a pilot, many of the trips included here involve mention of the special immigration rules for private fly-in tourists. Finally, there are Baja Adventures in the pine-clad granite fortress that is the Sierra de San Pedro Mártir in the northern part of the peninsula. Here, the author joined other veteran Bajeños in "hoof-and-boot" or horse-assisted explorations. In short, this book should be inspiration to those readers who want to visit Baja California, particularly the less tourist-trod destinations. Arm-chair travelers will derive vicarious pleasure without the effort of going there themselves.
