Description
"Jeffrey Meyer takes his readers on a very different 'tour' of Washington, D.C. He excavates the ways in which core convictions of a nation are embodied in space and expressed in art and architecture. Myths in Stone is a rich evocation of the dynamic life of America's sacred center."--Edward T. Linenthal, author of Preserving Memory: The Struggle to Create America's Holocaust Museum"Meyer is a seasoned guide leading the reader through the swamps, thickets, and political sticky wickets of the history of this capital city on the banks of the Potomac. All the while, he regales the reader with tales of the motley cast, the noble and the not-so-noble, the visionaries and the near-sighted, who helped to create the capital as we know it today. No other work captures the ongoing nature of the multiple retellings of this myth-in-stone as well as Meyer's has."--Gary Ebersole, author of Captured by Texts: Puritan to Postmodern Images of Indian Captivity
