The Role of Agency and Memory in Historical Understanding: Revolution, Reform, and Rebellion now available from Cambridge Scholars Publishing
Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of The Role of Agency and Memory in Historical Understanding: Revolution, Reform, and Rebellion, edited by Gordon P. Andrews and Yosay D. Wangdi.
This book, the first in a series entitled Historical and Pedagogical Issues: Insights from the Great Lakes History Conference, addresses historical and pedagogical issues. It explores the agency of historical actors tied to larger movements, demonstrating the efficacy and power of individuals to act with historical impact. It also describes the nuanced role of memory, often neglected in larger national or global social movements. This volume explores these powerful themes through a broad range of topics, including the research and pedagogy of revolution, reform, and rebellion as they are applied to race, ethnicity, political movements, labour, reconciliation, memory, and moral responsibility. The book will interest researchers that have an interest in both, or either, history and pedagogy.
