The unfinished bombing : Oklahoma City in American memory by Edward Tabor Linenthal( Book )

15 editions published between 1900 and 2003 in English and held by 1,227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Writing with empathy, passion, and critical insight, Edward T. Linenthal explores the ways Oklahomans, and American culture at large, have tried to make sense of this horrific event.

Preserving memory : the struggle to create America's Holocaust Museum by Edward Tabor Linenthal( Book )

22 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 1,032 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the moment it opened on April 22, 1993, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has captivated the American public with its innovative and affecting representation of one of the century's most troubling events. In its first year, it attracted nearly two million visitors -- at the rate of five thousand a day -- each of whom walked away with a lasting impression of awe in the face of the unimaginable. This honest, lively, and readable story of its creation portrays the emotionally complex and intellectually complicated struggles surrounding the birth of the museum. Striking in its tone and subtle observation, Preserving Memory tells the remarkable story of the fifteen-year struggle surrounding the project. Beset by endless obstacles, but imbued with the determination to create a worthy memorial to the pain and devastation of the "Final Solution," the museum's creators succeeded in making a monument to the extremes of human goodness and evil. - Jacket flap

American sacred space( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and Italian and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a series of pioneering studies, this book examines the creation -- and the conflict behind the creation -- of sacred space in America. The essays in this volume visit places in America where economic, political, and social forces clash over the sacred and the profane, from wilderness areas in the American West to the Mall in Washington, D.C., and they investigate visions of America as sacred space at home and abroad. Here are the beginnings of a new American religious history -- told as the story of the contested spaces it has inhabited. The contributors are David Chidester, Matthew Glass, Edward T. Linenthal, Colleen McDannell, Robert S. Michaelsen, Rowland A. Sherrill, and Bron Taylor
The landscapes of 9/11 : a photographer's journey by Jonathan Hyman( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the emotional aftermath of the September 11, 2001, attacks, people from all walks of life created and encountered memorials to those who were murdered. Vernacular art appeared almost everywhere--on walls, trees, playgrounds, vehicles, houses, tombstones, and even on bodies. This outpouring of grief and other acts of remembrance impelled photographer Jonathan Hyman to document and so preserve these largely impermanent, spontaneous expressions. His collection of 20,000 photographs, along with field notes and personal interviews, constitutes a unique archive of 9/11 public memory

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

From the "taming of the West" to the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, the portrayal of the past has become a battleground at the heart of American politics. What kind of history Americans should read, see, or fund is no longer merely a matter of professional interest to teachers, historians, and museum curators. Everywhere now, history is increasingly being held hostage, but to what end and why? In [this book], eight prominent historians consider the angry swirl of emotions that now surrounds public memory.-Back cover
