POSSESSED BY THE PAST: Heritage Crusade Spoils of History
POSSESSED BY THE PAST: The Heritage Crusade and the Spoils of History. David Lowenthal, Free Press, 1996.
"In Possessed by the Past, David Lowenthal explains the rise of this new obsession with the past and shows its power for both good and evil. He probes the passions that generate a need to find or invent a prideful past - or to mourn a grievous one - and shows how they are similar the world over. He demonstrates why and how relics, ancestry, and memory today, more than ever, become a source of both pride and peril."--Book Jacket.
