    schema:description "This account of the earthquake, the firestorms that followed, and the city's subsequent reconstruction shows how humans, not the forces of nature, nearly destroyed San Francisco in a remarkable display of simple ineptitude and power politics. Bolstered by previously unpublished accounts and photographs, this history of the country's greatest urban disaster will forever change conventional understanding of the event. Fradkin takes us onto the city's ruptured streets and into its exclusive clubs, teeming hospitals and refugee camps, and its Chinatown. He reveals how an elite oligarchy failed to serve the needs of ordinary people, the heroic efforts of obscure citizens, the long-lasting psychological effects, and how all these events ushered in a period of unparalleled civic upheaval. This look at how people and institutions function in catastrophe demonstrates just how deeply earthquake, fires, hurricanes, floods, wars, droughts, or acts of terrorism can shape us.--From publisher description."@en ;
