BooknewsA study of the construction of history in contemporary American culture, focusing on the disparate figures of Sen. Joseph McCarthy and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The author evaluates their images in the popular imagination; investigates ways that journalists, scholars, and people in their home towns have commemorated their lives; and suggests that disputes about the past stem less from political biases than from conflicting styles of history<-->memorial, tributary, and scholarly.
