​The Architecture of Representative Government

​​From the author's Foreword to the Second Edition:  "State capitols, designed and built for governments of the 19th and 20th centuries, are well-positioned to be the centers of social and political change to carry the nation successfully through the 21st century and beyond.  With this Second Edition, Fifty State Capitols continues its mission of entertaining, informing, and nurturing the people’s faith in representative government."
