Jonathan YardleyThe story of what happened between the mid-1970s and today is what Stofik tells in Saving South Beach. The book is part of the estimable Florida History and Culture Series published by the University Press of Florida, a collaborative effort by 10 of the state's public universities, "an eclectic but carefully crafted set of books that will provide the field of Florida studies with a fresh focus and encourage Florida researchers and writers to consider the broader implications and context of their work." Stofik, who lives in Connecticut but has been very active in Florida preservation organizations, isn't the most riveting prose stylist and includes a good deal more detail than will interest most readers, but the story is exceptionally interesting and has -- as she is at pains to point out -- implications that go far beyond the boundaries of the square mile that is the Miami Beach historic district.
