Public History Readings
The purpose of this title is to show how the model and method discussed in Public and Academic History may be put into practice. Through an anthology of readings with explanatory headnotes, the authors illustrate how a trained awareness of history as a discipline and a practiced focus on the processes of history provide the means for understanding the necessary and reciprocal relationships between "academic" and "public" history. Following each group of readings are applications or suggestions for projects which embody the sense of the readings.
