by Savage, Kirk
Princeton, New Jersey: Princeton University Press, 1999. Second printing, and first paperback printing. Softcover. VG. White & black & red & illus. wraps, 270 pp., BW illus. "The United States of American originated as a slave society, holding millions of Africans and their descendants in bondage, and remained so until a civil war took the lives of a half million soldiers, some once slaves themselves. [This book] explores how that history was told in public space -- specifically in the sculptural monuments that increasingly came to dominate streets, parks, and town squares in nineteenth-century America."
