Editorial Reviews

Review

A first-rate collection that directly and profitably addresses the role of history in national and other identities (and vice versa). A series of perceptive and ably-presented essays assess the process by which America s history and identity are reflected in and sustained through commemoration. Important not only for those concerned with the history, but also for comparable studies elsewhere --Jeremy Black, author of Using History, The Curse of History, and Historiography: Contesting the Past; Claiming the Future

This is an impressive book, wisely organized, skillfully introduced, and graced with apt illustrations … every reader will be struck by the overall high quality. Each essay satisfies exacting standards of research, lucidity, and insight. These original and important contributions are often hard-hitting and provocative. Collectively they are bound to make a stir among established scholars; university students new to the field of American/memory studies will be intrigued and inspired --David Mayers, author of Dissenting Voices in America s Rise to Power

Based on experiential fieldwork and rigorous archival research, as well as discourses grounded in critical theory and current scholarly conversations, each contributor poses questions about myth, memorials and, when called for, counter-memorials from a range of disciplines. Indeed, We Are What We Remember inventories the ways in which we wrestle over control of public memory, the battlefields and ideologies over which that memory is fought, and the tools by which history is cemented and toppled: the monument, the burial ground, the presidential speech, the museum, the political cartoon. We Are What We Remember is an important contribution to discourse and will be an excellent resource for the upper-division undergraduate or graduate classroom, as well as a vital tool for researchers and practitioners --Scott Magelssen, author of Living History Museums: Undoing History Through Performance
