Encyclopedia of Local History
How is local history thought about? How should it be approached? What is the context behind local events and institutions? Where does one start? Through brief, succinct notes and essay-length entries, the Encyclopaedia of Local History presents ideas to consider, sources to use, historical fields and trends to explore. It also provides commentary - useful, whimsical, and otherwise - on a number of subjects, including the everyday topics that most local historians encounter. Useful appendices provide information on such things as ethnic groups, religious organizations and other related topics.
