PERSPECTIVES OF THE BOOK

Since the nineteenth century, Nationalism has remained one of the most powerful forces in the history of ideas both for celebratory and polemical reasons, having been hailed as much as an ideology of emancipation and integration as a spectre of fragmentation and belligerence. It has given birth to some most impassioned writings in world literature both creative and theoretical.

With the renewed focus on monuments and memorials after 9/11 new questions are being raised and old ones revisited about how objects become memorialized or even de-memorialized. And while it is clear to us now that the monument's physical presence is always in jeopardy of disappearing, it is not as clear how a monument's meaning travels in and out of various conceptual spaces as the monument changes physical shape or adapts to the cultural ceremonies or power shifts within national states.
