Public History in Historical Perspective

This series explores, from different critical perspectives, how representations of the past in the U. S. and elsewhere have been mobilized to serve a variety of political, cultural, and social ends. Books in the series offer analyses of interest not simply to public historians but also the wide community of scholars engaged in efforts to understand the role of history in public life.
