Abstract:

In the aftermath of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, residents of the city's iconic Mission District bucked the city-wide development plan, defiantly announcing that in their neighbourhood they would be calling the shots. Ever since, the Mission has become known as a city within a city, and a place where residents have, over the last century, organized and reorganized themselves to make the neighbourhood in their own image. In 'Making the Mission', Ocean Howell tells the story of how residents of the Mission District organized to claim the right to plan their own neighbourhood and how they mobilized a politics of place and ethnicity to create a strong, often racialized identity - a pattern that would repeat itself again and again throughout the twentieth century.
