CHARLES WOLLENBERG, is former Chair of Social Sciences and Professor of History at Berkeley City College and author of other books.

The Railroad Age, the Depression, World War II, the Atomic Age, the Sixties–these  periods shaped and were in turn shaped by Berkeley, California-a city that has had a remarkable influence given its modest size. This concise book, the only up-to-date history of Berkeley, is a rich chronicle connecting the people, trends, and events that made the city to much larger themes in history.
