Monument Wars: Washington, D.C., the National Mall, and the Transformation of the Memorial Landscape

Kirk Savage Monument Wars: Washington, D.C., the National Mall, and the Transformation of the Memorial Landscape
University of California Press | 2009 | ISBN: 0520256549 | 408 pages | PDF | 10,7 MB

The National Mall in Washington, D.C., is "a great public space, as essential a part of the American landscape as the Grand Canyon," according to architecture critic Paul Goldberger, but few realize how recent, fragile, and contested this achievement is. In Monument Wars, Kirk Savage tells the Mall's engrossing story–its historic plan, the structures that populate its corridors, and the sea change it reveals regarding national representation. Central to this narrative is a dramatic shift from the nineteenth-century concept of a decentralized landscape, or "ground"-heroic statues spread out in traffic circles and picturesque parks-to the twentieth-century ideal of "space," in which authority is concentrated in an intensified center, and the monument is transformed from an object of reverence to a space of experience. Savage's lively and intelligent analysis traces the refocusing of the monuments themselves, from that of a single man, often on horseback, to commemorations of common soldiers or citizens; and from monuments that celebrate victory and heroism to memorials honoring victims. An indispensable guide to the National Mall, Monument Wars provides a fresh and fascinating perspective on over two hundred years of American history.
Expansion and Fragmentation: Internationalization, Political Change and the Transformation of the Nation-State

Expansion and Fragmentation: Internationalization, Political Change and the Transformation of the Nation-State by Kees van Kersbergen
English | June 1, 1999 | ISBN: 9053564276 | 241 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

Is the end of the nation-state approaching, now that the international economy takes less and less notice of borders between countries and the European Union has already acquired so much political power? What does national autonomy mean when governments delegate any number of powers to inter-national organizations? Internationalization leads to political change, and the position of the nation-state appears to be undergoing a radical process of erosion.

A New Order of Things: Property, Power, and the Transformation of the Creek Indians, 1733-1816

A New Order of Things: Property, Power, and the Transformation of the Creek Indians, 1733-1816 (Studies in North American Indian History) by Claudio Saunt
Cambridge University Press | August 28, 1999 | English | ISBN: 0521660432 | 314 pages | PDF | 3 MB

Claudio Saunt vividly depicts a dramatic transformation in the eighteenth century that overturned the world of the powerful and numerous Creek Indians and forever changed the Deep South. As the Creeks amassed a fortune in cattle and slaves, new property fostered a new possessiveness, and government by coercion bred confrontation. A New Order of Things is the first book to chronicle this decisive transformation in America's early history, a transformation that left deep divisions between the wealthy and poor, powerful and powerless.
