Learning History in America: Schools, Cultures, and Politics Learning History in America Schools, Cultures, and Politics Lloyd Kramer, Donald Reid and William L. Barney, Editors 1994 Spring
As it extends recent discussions about multiculturalism into the sphere of contemporary historical understanding, this book sets out explicitly to explore the practical and theoretical implications of these discussions for people who learn and teach history in the United States. “Represents an excellent intervention into the debates over the canon, curriculum, multiculturalism, and popular memory. If the book only covered these issues, it would be an excellent text, but it goes a step further and analyzes questions regarding the relationship among history, authority and power as pedagogical as well as political issues. This book is brilliant in its conception, vital in its theoretical interventions, and crucial to anyone interested in history and pedagogy.” --Henry A. Giroux, Pennsylvania State University
