"The case for writing local history is powerfully presented in "Rethinking Home."--"Doubletake magazine
From the Inside Flap
"Rethinking Home is pioneering scholarship at its best. Amato makes his case for a new local history combining academic sophistication with a deft human touch, that can provide a new perspective on the way in which humans have interacted with their natural and created environments over the past 150 years. Amato s eloquent plea for scholars to rethink the intricate relationships between home, place, nation, and world is one that cannot be ignored."Richard O. Davies, University Foundation Professor, University of Nevada
"Local history is the stepchild of our profession. Joseph Amato has emancipated Cinderella. Innovative and engaging, his passion for particulars brings life to people and places whose interest we have underrated far too long; and provides a good read beside."Eugen Weber Department of History, UCLA
"In the best Thoreauvian sense, Joseph Amato masterfully synthesizes and eloquently presents two decades of practicing and thinking deeply about local history. How pleasantly odd, how wonderful that a book on local history should be so rousing, so encouraging, so redemptive! Rethinking Home is a veritable call to arms for those of us who care deeply about the special, the distinctive character of our own home places, our own locales."Bradley P. Dean, Thoreau Institute at Walden Woods"
