Editorial Reviews



“This is a very interesting and diverse set of essays in the field of public history, which focuses our attention on fascinating case studies that have not been widely examined before. That alone makes this collection of interest to a broad readership.” —Edward Linenthal, editor of Journal of American History

“A timely and welcome addition to the literature on memory studies, Places of Public Memory seeks to marry memory studies with the methodology of the rhetorician. This exceptional book should be widely read by cultural historians, rhetoricians, students of public memory, designers of museums and public displays.”—Journal of Popular Culture

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book really is instrumental in setting a groundwork and theoretical foundation for understanding memory and place. Particularly Michael Bowman's essay in this book along with the introduction by Dickinson, Ott, and Blair are the strongest of the bunch however the book is well worth the price. If you are purchasing this for a class, know the reading is accessible, and pay special attention to the introduction and observe their seamless writing style and outstanding organization of complex topics. I actually spoke with Dr. Blair last night and in her estimation much more scholarship can come out of writing about and studying places of public memory.
