Preserving Maritime America: A Cultural History of the Nation's Great Maritime Museums - Public History in Historical Perspective (Hardback)James M. Lindgren (author)
- Temporarily unavailable
Begun by activists with unique agendas -- whether overseas empire, economic redevelopment, or cultural preservation -- these museums have displayed the nation's complex interrelationship with the sea. Yet they all faced chronic shortfalls, as policymakers, corporations, and everyday citizens failed to appreciate the oceans' formative environment. Preserving Maritime America shows how these institutions shifted course to remain solvent and relevant and demonstrates how their stories tell of the nation's rise and decline as a commercial maritime power.

Preserving Maritime America is an interesting -- and insightful -- look at the establishment of six of America's nautical museums... It's a particularly good read for those in the business of education and preservation. And it also has something to offer anyone in the realm of cultural tourism and related nonprofits.--The Day
