Sometimes new items are added to the general library stock that don’t fit the criteria of Local Studies, but would nonetheless be of interest to members of our local history and genealogical societies. THIS IS ONE OF THEM! It includes a chapter on Family History and the effect of online information on genealogical research.
The blurb reads
“Consuming History examines how history works in contemporary popular culture. Analysing a wide range of cultural entities from computer games to daytime television, it investigates the ways in which society consumes history and how a reading of this consumption can help us understand popular culture and issues of representation.”
