What People are Saying About This

Robert Rosenstone

In Engaging the Past, Landsberg moves towards a broader investigation of 'experiential' or 'affective history' and its relationship to the production and acquisition of historical knowledge. Given the culture today, this is not just a cutting edge book, it is one that will potentially inflect the way we think about the meaning of the word, history, in the future.
