Worthy of a Nation: Washington, DC from L'Enfant to the NatiWorthy of a Nation: Washington, DC from L’Enfant to the National Capital Planning Commission (second edition)

by Frederick Gutheim and Antoinette J. Lee

When Worthy of the Nation first appeared in 1977, it won much acclaim for its comprehensive treatment of Washington's design and urban development. Now the story has been brought up to the present, tracing the first thirty years of home rule for the District through the completion of the National Museum of the American Indian and the World War II Memorial in the early twenty-first century. Illustrated with plans, maps, and new and historic photographs, the second edition of Worthy of the Nation provides researchers and general readers with an appealing and authoritative view of the planning and evolution of the federal district.
