Enchantment, Terror, and Deliverance in the City of Love (Free Press, 2012). Commemorate the 50th
anniversary of the Summer of Love and explore its aftermath with this vivid and sweeping history of
events and people--from the diggers and the hippies, to Patty Hearst and Jim Jones, to the MilkMoscone
murders and the AIDS epidemic -- that shook and reshaped the city from 1967 to the 1982.
Part of the city-wide Summer of Love 50th Anniversary Celebration. This title is available for purchase at
the Presidio Visitor Center.
If you haven’t read local journalist David Talbot’s 2012 book about San Francisco in the ’60s and ’70s—subtitled “Enchantment, Terror, and Deliverance in the City of Love”—what better summer to read it than now? Even if you lived in San Francisco then, you’ll be surprised at what the book reveals. It’s all here: the politics, the music, the movers and shakers, the complete lowdown. Presidio Trust historian Barbara Berglund leads a discussion about the book.
