(p.1) Introduction
Memorials to Shattered Myths

Harriet F. Senie

Oxford University Press

The introduction introduces key themes of the book: myths of national identity challenged by the Vietnam War, Oklahoma City bombing, Columbine shootings, and the 9/11 attacks; the conflation of heroes and victims in the memorials to these national tragedies rather than an exploration of the events themselves; the relationship of the Holocaust to the key memorials discussed; and the failure to acknowledge distinctions among categories of victims. It also includes a summary of the pertinent literature and the content of each chapter.

Keywords:   Vietnam War, Oklahoma City bombing, Columbine shootings, 9/11 attacks, categories of victims
