Descripción del libro
November 2018 will mark the 40th anniversary of two horrifying events that shook San Francisco: the Jonestown massacre, led by prominent San Franciscan Jim Jones, and the assassination of Harvey Milk, one of America's first openly gay elected officials. CULT CITY tells the story of a once-great city gone horribly wrong in the 1970s through the biographies of two of its most famous citizens, Jones and Milk. Based on extensive interviews and archival research, this book busts the many myths that have gathered around these two figures. It provides case studies in media myth making, academic bias, and political cowardice.
