Despite the United States being one of the most developed countries in the world, housing is one of the elephants in the room when it comes to conversations involving the American citizens’ social and political domains. California is among some of the most affected states in the housing sector. As early as the mid-twentieth century, Los Angeles had a staggering number of more than thirty thousand people being homeless. Is there a reason behind this? Dennis Hathaway delves deeper into this in his book The Battle of Lincoln Place. He gives an account of how a group of tenants from an apartment complex in Los Angeles face off with their landlords, all in a bid to avoid eviction, which they deemed unlawful, from what they now considered home.
Dennis Hathaway’s style of writing is many things, but simply not ordinary. His choice of words gives his book a robust professional touch. He aligns his ideas conventionally, yet in a unique way. He maintains a consistent flow of ideas, making his message perceivable. He uses historical and statistical data, coupled with a few real-life scenarios for elaboration. He exhibits his vast knowledge of real estate and America’s housing history through his writing. He captures every anecdote of the people he incorporates in the book boldly, not sparing any detail or sentimental instance. Reading the book felt like watching a documentary based on an exclusive expose script. Or better yet, it felt like Dennis Hathaway had taken me back to Los Angeles in the period between the sixties and nineties. I found The Battle of Lincoln Place very educative. Enthusiasts of nonfiction books about real estate, finance, and politics will love this. It is a great piece of work.
