Summary
How objective are our history books? This addition to the Writing History series examines the critical role that memory plays in the writing of history. The volume includes essays from an international team of historians, bringing together analysis of forms of public history such as museums, exhibitions, memorials and speeches; coverage of the ancient world to the present, on topics such as oral history and generational and collective memory; and two key case studies on Holocaust memorialization and the memory of Communism.--
