A Crack at the Edge of the World: America and the Great California Earthquake of 1906

Simon Winchester, author, HarperCollins

The book places the events in California in 1906 into a global context, geologically and sociologically - reflecting on one level on the new ways of looking at the world afforded both by plate tectonic theory and by the fresh perspectives of space travel; and looking at the immense social ramifications - especially religious - of the event.
