The Public History Reader
"This will become an essential text for all those interested in the interrogation of everyday experience, who regard history as a social form of knowledge, the work of a thousand different hands." - Paul Gough, The University of the West of England
More than ever the value of the past is simultaneously recognized and under attack. Who decides what is history and how it should be presented are timely issues. The Public History Reader is the first international reader to explore public history as an everyday practice, combining key texts and material not available either online or in journals.
