Description
 
Traces the history of the public monument (PM) from the 1870s to the present day, when the distinction between public monuments & sculptures is increasingly blurred. Shows how, until 1914, the PM served clear purposes of educ. & legitimization. Since WW2, European monuments have commemorated one of humankindís most terrible catastrophes, the Holocaust. Recently, Amer. have attempted to come to terms with the legacy of Vietnam through the erection of a monument in Wash., DC; the world has also witnessed the fall of Communism via the destruction of statues of Lenin, Stalin & other leaders. The failure of traditional memorials can be seen as signaling the demise of the PM in the West, but they continue to flourish elsewhere. B&W photos & illustrations.
