MEDIA REVIEWS

'This important and imaginative book explores the myriad ways in which the past is represented and remembered, remade and contested. Starting from the premise that 'we are all historians', People and their Pasts uses rich case studies from around the world to examine the aims, approaches and impacts of public history and the pivotal role of the public historian.' - Alistair Thomson, Monash University, Australia

'As historians we need to postion orselves within this wider framework, and engage with different forms of history. The collection provides a thought-provoking guide to some of the debates we might find there.' The English Historical Review

'. . . thought provoking and insightful . . .' The Public History Review

'the chapters are cohesive and cumulative, responding deftly and elegantly to the volume's overall themes and framework... a valuable resource for both students and the informed scholar' - International Journal of Heritage Studies
