"We must consider that we shall be A City Upon a Hill, the eyes of
all people upon us," John Winthrop told his Pilgrim community
crossing the Atlantic to found the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Four
centuries later, Americans are still building Cities Upon a Hill.
In Cities on a Hill Pulitzer Prize-winner Frances FitzGerald
explores this often eccentric, sometimes prophetic inclination in
America. With characteristic wit and insight she examines four
radically different communities -- a fundamentalist church, a
guru-inspired commune, a Sunbelt retirement city, and a gay
activist community -- all embodying this visionary drive to shake
the past and build anew. Frances FitzGerald here gives eloquent
voice and definition to a quintessentially American impulse. It is
a resonant work of literary imagination and journalistic precision.
