A History of Love and Hate in 21 Statues Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Why is it easy to hate and difficult to love? When societies fracture into warring tribes, we demonise those who oppose us.

We tear down our statues, forgetting that what begins with the destruction of statues, often leads to the killing of people.

Blending history, philosophy and psychology, A History of Love and Hate in 21 Statues is a compelling exploration of identity and power.

This remarkable book spans every continent, religion and era, through the creation and destruction of 21 statues from Hatshepsut and the Buddhas of Bamiyan to Mendelssohn, Edward Colston and Frederick Douglass. The 21 statues are Hatshepsut (Ancient Egypt), Nero (Suffolk, UK), Athena (Syria), Buddhas of Bamiyan (Afghanistan), Hecate (Constantinople), Our Lady of Caversham (near Reading, UK), Huitzilopochtli (Mexico), Confucius (China), Louis XV (France), Mendelssohn (Germany), The Confederate Monument (US), Sir John A.

Macdonald (Canada), Christopher Columbus (Venezuela), Edward Colston (Bristol, UK), Cecil Rhodes (South Africa), George Washington (US), Stalin (Hungary), Yagan (Australia), Saddam Hussein (Iraq), B.

R. Ambedkar (India) and Frederick Douglass (US).
