Pub Date: 2005
Condition: Good. Binding tight. No tears, bends or folds. Gift inscription on title page. Very light edge and corner wear.
Notes: Textbook. Undergraduate level history, or “Public History” as the editor calls it. “Public history is history for an out-of-school audience,…include walking tours, historic site interpretation, historic preservation, historic novels and films, archival administration, and museum curation.” (from the Introduction). Gift inscription by the editor to previous owner. The problem as I see it is that an “out-of-school” audience may not need or want to know about Custer Battlefield archaeology or (especially today) public monuments and political correctness or firefighter tragedies or Denver brothels, all in one volume. That audience might want a single book on a single subject. The editor may think this volume is for an “out-of-school” audience but he’s making his royalties on the students who are required to buy this for History 264.
