Editorial Reviews

Review

. . . intellectually stimulating, a delight to read and one that will appeal to many humanists and social scientists... (Bryn Mawr Classical Review)

Examining closely the conflicts between 'official' and 'unofficial' narratives of the past, as well as diverse interpretations of history directly influence by the modern day, The Useable Past is an insightful and scholarly work revealing not only document aspects of Hellenic history, but the flexibility of the human psyche as characteristics of the human condition today as it was in the days of Greek antiquity. (Midwest Book Review)

A stellar collection... Highly recommended. (CHOICE)

Format: Paperback
Knowledgeably co-edited by academicians Keith S. Brown and Yannis Hamilakis, The Useable Past is a collaboratively compiled collection of essays by eleven learned scholars of history, archaeology, and anthropology concerning historic rituals, building styles, and traditions of Greek identity. Examining closely the conflicts between "official" and "unofficial" narratives of the past, as well as diverse interpretations of history directly influence the modern day, The Useable Past is an insightful and scholarly work revealing not only document aspects of Hellenic history, but the flexibility of the human psyche as characteristic of the human condition today as it was in the days of Greek antiquity.
