    Discover 41 incredible ruins in California. Atlas Obscura is your guide to the world's hidden wonders. The narrator, Inez, is a young girl living in California in the late 60s to 70s.

    In the ruins of San Francisco California, survivors of an epidemic that swept the nation have pooled inside the cities, restructuring life as we know it, pitting the rich Golden against the poor Dreg. Kade Shaw and his best friend, Marcus, are two .   At the center of Stewart’s study is the midth-century artist Giovanni Battista Piranesi. The son of a Venetian stonemason, his effort to preserve ruins forever through printmaking illustrates.

    The original book was quite a “page turner,” but there was much that could have been improved. ‘Out of The Ruins’ makes those improvements and hopefully retains the book’s “page turning” quality.

From its inception, neoliberalism flirted with authoritarian liberalism as it warred against robust democracy.
