City on a Hill: Urban Idealism in America from the Puritans to the Present


Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture

Early in his just-published book, Alex Krieger writes: “Columbus’s claim of finding a whole new heaven and earth, more than the geographic details he and later explorers mapped, fueled dreams of fortuitous beginnings. The transcendent possibility that the paradise of the Judeo-Christian bible might be recaptured in that new place occupied the minds of theologians, philosophers, and the faithful.” No stranger to Dallas, Prof. Krieger, who teaches Urban Design in the Harvard Graduate School, returns in the Spring with his latest accomplishment—an acclaimed best-seller with a title that hearkens back to the earliest visions of and metaphors for America: City on a Hill. Prof. Krieger will read from and talk about his book and then be joined on stage by Dr. Gail Thomas, Director of the Institute’s Center for the City, and others for a conversation followed by audience discussion. After the program, copies of City on a Hill will be available for purchase and signing by Prof. Krieger.
