The Docks delivers a raw and poignant behind-the-scenes view of our port through the eyes of workers, shippers, executives and sideline critics. Sharpsteen pieces together an unvarnished mosaic that reveals the enormity of the operations and its workforce, amidst a perennial maelstrom of debates and competing interests.""Geraldine Knatz, Executive Director, Port of Los Angeles An engaging page turner. Sharpsteen captures the feeling and interconnectedness of the Los Angeles Waterfront, the noise, the excitement, the joys, the tensions, the complexities and conflicts. I found it difficult to put down.""David Wellman, author of Whitewashing Race Sharpsteen has almost a novelist's talent for using human interest profiles to engage an audience and present a non-fiction narrative. Here is working knowledge not only of how the Port of Los Angeles functions, but of its crucial importance to the region, nation, and world economy, and what its loss would mean.""Gray Brechin, author of Imperial San Francisco: Urban Power, Earthly Ruin
