Berkeley is as much a concept as a city, resonating powerfully with those on all sides of the political spectrum. But insiders kw it as one of the most exciting cities in the country, where eclectic neighborhoods, a sparkling waterfront, and world-class festivals coexist happily with radicals, hippies, and political correctness. This sumptuous photographic tour with text shows exactly what makes the city special, offering dazzling images of the city's vibrant street life, gorgeous natural attractions, emerging arts district, lovely Rose Garden, legendary Claremont Hotel spa, and much more.
