Lands of Promise and Peril: Geographies of California

California is an elusive dream but also a cruel illusion. It is both the Golden State and the “plundered province,” a place of beauty and brutality, sanctuary and exclusion. Lands of Promise and Peril: Geographies of California explores the material places and social spaces that have created both astonishing prosperity and intractable inequality in the state. It focuses on the peculiarities of place and the experiences of ordinary people, while also considering how broader forces—environmental degradation and preservation, industrial innovation and exploitation, urban expansion and segregation, and cultural oppression and activism—shape opportunities and injustices in everyday life.
