Overview

Public history is seen by editors Gardner (history, National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution) and LaPaglia (chief curator, Tennessee State Museum) to differ from academic history chiefly in its intended audience, the wider public. This revised edition of Public History: An Introduction (1986) includes 26 essays exploring the types of public history and its practice in a range of settings. Essays explore the public history roles of archivists, documentary editors, editors and publishers, historic preservationists, museum educators, librarians, manuscript curators, and policy advisors. Settings explored include historical parks and sites, local to national historical museums and societies, businesses and corporations, and on the Web (this last is new to the revised edition).
