In 1991, the federal government ordered the closure of the Long Beach Naval Station and Naval Hospital, signaling the beginning of the end of the Navy's fifty-year presence in the city. Set against the backdrop of a growing global economy and the emergence of the United States as the preeminent global consumer, the local fallout from the base closures represented national and global anxieties played out at a local level. Each chapter describes a particular vignette within this larger story, a fight over the future of a specific space, with each fight having a connection to the city-and the nation's-new role in the post-Cold War world.
