This title presents original discussions on the public role of history and historians from a pantheon of notable experts. ""Recent Themes on Historians and the Public"" represents some of the best recent writing on the public role of historians.

Award-winning 'popular historian' Adam Hochschild begins by discussing the relationship between popular and academic history. An all-star cast of historians and editors offer their responses, forming a fascinating extended conversation. This forum addresses questions such as what the public role of the historian should be and whether practicing history requires a license. In addition the book contains a candid exchange about the state of the history profession at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Designed to engage both students and general readers, ""Recent Themes on Historians and the Public"" illuminates the controversy over the role of historians in the public sphere.
