Book Summary

Beginning in 1968, a motley cast of students, laborers, artists, revolutionaries, and provocateurs from San Francisco's Chinatown make their way through the history of the day, becoming caught in a riptide of politics and passion, clashing ideologies, and personal turmoil that culminate in their effort to save the International Hotel—epicenter of the Yellow Power Movement.
