Description

I am very very impressed with this book.... The writing is graceful precise revealing a host of complex issues rather than covering them up with verbiage.... It is one of the best case studies in the world of public history I have yet read and a very important story to tell.... I think this book will be very well received and widely reviewed.

(Edward T. Linenthal author of Preserving Memory and The Unfinished Bombing: Oklahoma City in American Memory)

This is the best thing I have read on the politics of public history in a long time.... Stanton has very fresh insights on the relationship between urban real estate developers and progressive public historians and on what she calls 'rituals of reconnection' through which middle-class industrial historians and their middle-class visitors use places such as Lowell to connect with their grandparents' working-class backgrounds.

(David Glassberg author of Sense of History: The Place of the Past in American Life)

is thorough superbly researched and engagingly written. Stanton has produced a study of the highest quality one that should be read by both aspiring and practicing public historians. It should be a required text in introductory courses for public history and historic preservation graduate programs as it will prepare students for the intense contentious multivocal and politically charged world of history in the public realm.

( The Journal of American History)

This ethnographic study of Lowell's public history demonstrates care for a community in flux as well as respect for (and critique of) local knowledge and public memory. Stanton's scholarship is informed by participation in public history and in turn her analysis and reflection can help inform that very public history.... Stanton's clear compelling prose provides a model for anthropological study of one's socioeconomic equals.... There is much to recommend in this book.

( H-Net Reviews in the Humanities and Social Sciences)

Cathy Stanton's book offers historians a novel approach to the practice of their craft.... Stanton sets forth insightful criticisms of the dangers inherent in the heritage gambit of history for developmental purposes.
