Making Histories in Transport Museumsby Colin Divall, Andrew Scott
Pub. Date: 12/20/2001
Publisher: Bloomsbury Academic
This book is the first in 30 years to take transport museums seriously as vehicles for the making of public histories. Drawing upon many years' experience of visiting and working in transport museums around the world, the authors argue that the sector's historical roots are more complex than is usually thought. Written from a multidisciplinary perspective but firmly rooted in the practice of making public histories, this book brings the study of transport museums firmly into the mainstream of academic and professional debate.
