Reviews

McClelland weaves together a narrative of a region under siege by the economic forces of tech, gentrification, and inequality... A refreshing perspective.--Francesco Guerrieri
A people's history of the Bay Area.... McClelland carefully layers each dot, each narrative, and with it, a little window into the Bay Area widens until you step back and see it: the full picture.--Erin Baldassari
Silicon City should be San Francisco's next big city-wide read.... It should be required reading for every employee of Twitter and Salesforce. Google and Facebook employees should climb aboard their comfy buses bound for Silicon Valley one fine sunny morning and find a copy on their seats. At the very least, McClelland should send a copy to each of the 11 members of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.--Katie Hafner
