Touted as progress, postwar redevelopment spawned a new age in Sacramento, California. As city planners designated areas of urban blight and directed bulldozers to make way for commercial districts and pedestrian malls, the churches, jazz clubs and family homes of the West End and Japantown were upended and residents scattered. Displaced families and businesses reestablish Touted as progress, postwar redevelopment spawned a new age in Sacramento, California.

    I once told Bill Burg that I could write circles around him. It was obviously posturing, as it is obvious that he skills far surpass mine. This book helped me make sense of my adopted city and answered many questions like "Why is Sutter's Fort so far from the river? How did they get water?" and "Who is this Jodette character?" Anyway, a great and interesting read for those interested in Sacramento. I once told Bill Burg that I could write circles around him.
