Harvey Smith’s new book, Berkeley and the New Deal (Arcadia Press, 2014) got a nice story in the Contra Costa Times, a suburban paper in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Part of Arcadia’s “Images of America” series,  this book is a substantial piece of scholarship by Smith, not just a collection of historic photographs and incidental commentary like so many other Arcadia contributions.  It makes for fascinating reading.
