5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificently informed book, 26 Aug 2008
This review is from: The Heritage Obsession: The Battle for England's Past (Paperback)
This is a fantastic book which covers in detail a huge swathe of heritage issues while always retaining an open mind and a flexibly nimble approach to its complex subject. Cowell's book is painstakingly researched, diligently balanced, and delicately, quietly polemic. This is historiography as it should be written: clear in purpose, clear in expression and clearly an excellent resource for both those new to the subject and those well-versed in the broad materials re-presented. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, 31 Mar 2013
This review is from: The Heritage Obsession: The Battle for England's Past (Paperback)
A good book, clearly well researched and written with a voice of authority. However, for an academic, it is always annoying when authors do not use footnotes (a noteworthy attempt is made to make up for this lacking by the inclusion of an extensive bibliography).
