Description
 
This book takes us on a fascinating and informative tour of the nationís capital. Meyer unravels the complex symbolism of the city and explores its meaning for our national consciousness. Mythic and religious themes pervade the capital -- in its original planning, in its monumental architecture, and in the ritualized events that take place there. Meyer uses a series of walks through the city as an organizational device that roots the reader in the actual experience of the space of the capital. He discusses many historical figures and events, compares Washington to other great cities of the world such as Beijing and Berlin, and discusses the meaning and history of its architecture and many works of art. Over 40 illustrations and photos.
