Editorial Reviews

Review

Archive Stories is path-breaking in its subject matter, methodology, and up-to-date reflection on the status of historical knowledge. It is hard to see how anyone can avoid using this important anthology in methodology and historiography courses.”—Bonnie G. Smith, author of The Gender of History: Men, Women, and Historical Practice


“Important and timely, this fascinating collection of tales from a multitude of repositories and record offices removes all sorts of archives from the historian’s grasp (though there are many extraordinary and brave historians writing here) and restores their meaning to politics and society, to the telling of individual and collective pasts.”—Carolyn Steedman, author of Dust: The Archive and Cultural History

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Senna777 on October 4, 2008
Format: Paperback
The book consists of a series of articles written by historians about their archival experiences. The articles present a variety of issues historians must face when visiting archives. Some of the issues are quite shocking, and others are expected. Nevertheless, the book certainly gives future historians tips on what to expect or beware of when visiting archives--whether foreign or domestic.

This book is used for graduate level courses. The non-historical minded person can easily read this without complication. It is not a difficult read, and if your not a historian or student of history and want to grasps the process of historical research--then check the book out. I would suggest all history student who plan to move onto graduate school to check this book out. It will highlight some of the difficulties when visiting archives that you may or may not know. Some of the articles (accounts) are very interesting. After-all, the articles are accounts of a variety of historians experiences in foreign archives, as well as domestic archives.
