Hannah Dobbz is a writer, editor, filmmaker, and former squatter. She is the author of the book Nine-Tenths of the Law which examines the history of squatting and property struggles in the United States. From 2004 and 2007, she filmed a documentary about squatters in the San Francisco East Bay called Shelter: A Squatumentary.

She is also a founding board member of Land Action.


Steven DeCaprio is the CEO and founder of Land Action. For over a decade he has been involved in housing struggles and advocacy in the Bay Area. He is known as an expert on occupying, improving, and repurposing abandoned property for the benefit of the community at large and for providing resources to environmental and social justice organizers. He was featured in the film "Shelter: a squatumentary", has been featured in numerous publications, and was named one of 12 Visionaries of 2012 by the Utne Reader.

Reviews:

"Considering how many people all over the world have been involved in squatting vacant properties, it is amazing to me that there are so few good books on the subject. Hannah Dobbz's book is a welcome addition." Seth Tobocman, War in the Neighborhood and Understanding the Crash

"Millions of foreclosed homes and abandoned buildings on one hand; millions of Americans desperate for decent shelter on the other. Hannah Dobbz makes the necessary addition of resources and needs in a book that is both a brilliant history of squatting in the USA and a template for the next stage of the Occupy movement." Mike Davis, Planet of Slums and Dead Cities
