Writing with a signature command of his subject and with compelling resonance, Marc Reisner leads us through Californias improbable rise from a largely desert land to the most populated state in the nation, fueled by an economic engine more productive than all of Africa. Reisner believes that the success of this last great desert civilization hinges on Californias denial of its own inescapable fate: Both the Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay areas sit astride two of the most violently seismic zones on the planet. The earthquakes that have already rocked California were, according to Reisner, a mere prologue to a future cataclysm that will result in immense destruction. Concluding with a hypothetical but chillingly realistic description of what such a disaster would look like, A Dangerous Placemixes science, history, and cultural commentary in a haunting work of profound importance.

Marc Reisner was born in 1948 in Ohio. A graduate of Earlham College, he worked for many years at Natural Resources Defense Counsel, where he wrote their newsletter.
