Pressestimmen"In Written in Stone, Levinson bravely confronts another article of constitutional faith, freedom of speech. Instead of the conventional examination of an individual's right to speak without interference from government, however, he looks at what protections the Bill of Rights provides for government-sanctioned speech."--TLS, 10 September, 1999 "This remarkable book addresses an issue as old as civilisation and as topical as this morning's newspaper. No reader of Levinson's cultivated, nuanced, and balanced narrative will ever view a public monument in quite the same way." Norman Dorsen; President, ACLU, 1976-1991 "Planners, arts administrators and elected members would do well to read this eloquent essay."--Journal of Urban Design, Vol 4, No. 3, 1999
