Editorial Reviews

Review

“Steve F. Anderson’s striking contention is that theorists of history pay too little attention to the way media products like those shape the understanding both of historical events and of the way history is told. . . . What most interests Anderson about many often-bizarre, history-related media products is that they contribute to the study and understanding of historiography—the way history is told.”—Chronicle of Higher Education

“Well written and thought-provoking, this volume serves as an excellent example of how film studies can explore new territory and push through boundaries while still remaining relevant in many fields. Historians, artists, technology buffs, and many others will find interesting perspectives on the impact of film on their areas of expertise. . . . Highly recommended.”—Choice

Review

“Underlying Technologies of History is the notion that written history has been long stuck in a mode of presentation that dreadfully limits our relationship to the stuff of the past. Anderson reads in depth some examples of the use of ‘history’ as it is presented in films, on TV programs, in video games, and online, using these formats as both an attack on the limitations of traditional history and as possible models for how history can become more multi-voiced, open-ended, problematic, and truer to the diversity and multiplicities of the past. The result is a fascinating, provocative, and important book that is unlike anything else on the market today.” (Robert A. Rosenstone, California Institute of Technology)
