In their new book Urban Reinventions, editors Lynn Horiuchi and Tanu Sankalia demonstrate how a single site - SF's Treasure Island - may be interpreted in multiple ways: as a world’s fair site, military installation, a semi-derelict relic of past lives, a toxic site of nuclear waste, and a future eco-city and major real estate development. The volume offers a wide spectrum of critiques of race, imperialism, gendered Orientalism, military land use, property capital, new-eco cities, sustainability, and waste as a byproduct of development.
