In 1914, desperate for land after the Gold Rush brought a population explosion to San Francisco, the city exiled its cemeteries, barring burials within city limits and relocating its existing graveyards to the tiny town of Colma, just south of Daly City, spawning America's only necropolis, where the dead outnumber the living 1000 to 1. But there's more to the story of the Bay Area's cemeteries than this expulsion. Silent Cities San Francisco reveals the complex cultural makeup of the Bay Area, where diversity and history collide, pitting the dead against the living in a race for space and memorialization

A moving, recognizable look at life on lockdown and the effect the coronavirus pandemic had across the world—because every city had a story to tell, and at the end of it all, we were all in it together. In the past year, hospitals filled, highways and subways emptied, landmarks and parks were deserted, our healthcare workers became increasingly fatigued and frustrated, and nearly all human activity paused. In photographs, The Great Wall and The Colosseum look photoshopped, with no tourists in sight. This book is unique in that it creates a visual narrative to document that emptiness as a way to reflect and to find solace amid the shock. A year later, it's something we've all seen and can relate to. This is a stunning collection of the abandoned and austere sights of fifteen major cities throughout the world during the peak outbreak of COVID-19. With their fine art backgrounds and through their network of professional photographers, Julie and Jeffrey Loria worked together to capture the unprecedented lockdown conditions worldwide. The photos show a range of emotions from the physical and psychological weight of caskets being carried to a Rio cemetery, to the completely empty and eerie Times Square and Rodeo Drive, to the patriotic pride in Rome's t-shirt display honoring their Italian flag colors as a symbol of hope. The photographs are not only a reminder of the harrowing pandemic that hushed some of the world’s greatest urban streets, but also proof that across the globe, we were all in this together. Beneath the somberness in these images, there is a hint of beauty amid the stillness, but most of all, there is the presence of hope and promise that we will thrive again. Cities featured include: New York Jerusalem Boston Tokyo Paris Los Angeles Rome Rio de Janeiro San Francisco Washington, DC London Miami Tel Aviv Madrid Chicago

"This is a thorough and thought-provoking review of the events at Boalt Hall and the issue-affirmative action-which has been at the forefront of public debate about higher education."—John Huerta, graduate of Boalt Hall '68, civil rights lawyer and member of the California and Washington, D.C., bars "A key participant in the student activity protesting the end of affirmative action at Berkeley, Andrea Guerrero tells the story from the perspective of an advocate for diversity. Her insights are important for anyone who wants to understand the events that occurred on the campus in 1997-98 and the motivations of those who took place in them."—Herma Hill Kay, former Dean of Boalt "Guerrero's up-close account of affirmative action at Boalt serves as a painful reminder of why affirmative action was so badly needed and why its loss will affect California for generations to come."—Lydia Chavez, author of The Color Bind: California's Battle to End Affirmative Action "A much-needed account of the rise and fall of affirmative action at one of the nation's premier law schools."—Richard Delgado, coauthor of Critical Race Theory: An Introduction "Silence at Boalt Hall is a crucial book on a crucial subject. As a case history of affirmative action at Berkeley Law School, the book chronicles the dispiriting gap between our nation's principles and practices on equal opportunity. The dismantling of diversity initiatives at the University of California is a sobering illustration of all that needs to change if we are truly committed to equal justice under law."—Deborah L. Rhode, author of The Interests of Justice
