Fallen Idols Twelve Statues That Made History
Please select all options.
History is not erased when statues are pulled down. It is made.
Political discourse, activism and a reaction to unjust events over the past few years has caused a reassessment of the world's history and of who has been valued in society in the past. As symbols of colonialism, oppression and invasion, statues of questionable old white men have become the target for protestors to stand against the violent history of countries all over the world, to pull the statues down and call out the misplaced idolatry. Author Alex von Tunzelmann takes 12 of these toppled historical symbols of power and looks to how they ended up as a statue, what was their contribution to history and why it was correct that they were pulled down. She also addresses whether this is the correct way to deal with the atrocities of history and how it will affect our future.
