Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Citing evidence that the public's hunger for history is being fed by journalists and public intellectuals who have little standing within or knowledge of academic history, argues that professional historians must stop writing for each other and enlarge their audience to include the public. Calls for rigorous and impartial teaching, more attractive publishing incentives for academicians, and the commitment of writing programs to accessibility and lively discourse. Revised from a 1991 doctoral dissertation for the University of Michigan. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
