The United States’ most populous state, California is the world’s eighth largest economy. The state has some of the planet’s most productive farmland and in the 1990s enjoyed an extensive real-estate boom. But intensive, industrialised agriculture has polluted much of the environment and now, with more foreclosed homes than anywhere else in the world, it is also home to a growing number of tent cities. Gifford Hartman takes us on a road trip through California’s Central Valley to witness the toxicity: of mortgages and ecosystems, houses, drugs and human relations.

Living Learning is part of a living politics”.

Issue #1 includes some characteristics of landlord Howard Willett in his own words, some analysis of landlordism, some history of the area discussed (north and northeast Portland), and a brief guide to some tenants' rights. read more »
