Contesting History's greatest strength lies in its placing the nation-state back on center stage in the field of public history and in lucidly demonstrating public history's long entanglement with the rise of the nation-state. The book presents a powerful corrective to narrower accounts of public history that cast the field as a product of the twentieth century or late-twentieth-century academe, and it will be a valuable text for students, academics, public history practitioners, and communities. * American Historical Review * A valuable study on use of history that is recommended not only for academic historians, but also representatives of the "history in public space". * Czasy Nowozytne: "Modern Times" journal (Bloomsbury translation) * Black (Univ. of Exeter, UK) examines how history is "being used to serve interests and agendas" that are largely set by states. His is one of the few public history texts that seek to be comparative in nature, using wide-ranging cases from Argentina to Zimbabwe, seeking to avoid the approach of "a small number of well-ventilated examples. * CHOICE * Well written and very engaging. Pitched well at undergraduates. * Claire Hubbard-Hall, Bishop Grosseteste University, UK *
