   schema:description "Non-academic history - 'public history' - is a complex, dynamic entity which impacts on the popular understanding of the past at all levels. In "Consuming History", Jerome de Groot examines how society consumes history and how a reading of this consumption can help us understand popular culture and issues of representation. This book analyses a wide range of cultural entities - from computer games to daytime television, from blockbuster fictional narratives such as Da Vinci Code to DNA genealogical tools - to analyse how history works in contemporary popular culture. Jerome de Groot probes how museums have responded to the heritage debate and the way in which new technologies have brought about a shift in access to history, from online gameplaying to internet genealogy. He discusses the often conflicted relationship between 'public' and academic history, and raises important questions about the theory and practice of history as a discipline. Whilst mainly focussing on the UK, the book also compares the experiences of the USA, France and Germany. "Consuming History" is an important and engaging analysis of the social consumption of history and offers an essential path through the debates for readers interested in history, cultural studies and the media."@en ;
