Nearby History by David E. Kyvig and Myron A. Marty is one of the essential volumes on any public historian's bookshelf and syllabus. Whereas every other "how to do history" book seems aimed at fledgling academic historians and grounds its advice on academic libraries and footnoting, it is Nearby History that shows the reader how to do hands-on public history research with the resources found in every community. First published in 1984, the book remains as important as ever. And yet the world of historical research has changed since 1984--not just the explosion of online historical sources but also the possibilities of using digital cameras and scanners for research, digital communities for historical collaboration, and podcasts, smartphone apps and websites to present research and interpretations of nearby history. It is time for an update. Newly updated by Larry Cebula, this fourth edition of Nearby History is a comprehensive handbook for those interested in investigating the history of communities, families, local institutions, and cultural artifacts, Nearby History helps its readers research the world near at hand. In this fourth edition, the authors discuss a variety of research approaches involving published literature, unpublished documents, oral histories, visual and material sources, and landscapes; offer guidance in the uses of technology, particularly digital photography and digital voice recording; and suggest methods of historical presentation. The authors also explore the promise and pitfalls of research in the digital age. Richly illustrated with photos and documents, Nearby History is an excellent resource for both professionally trained and self-taught historians.

Recenzijas

This newly-updated edition of Nearby History expands on the range of digital sources and innovative ideas for doing community history. Local historians, history students, and the public will find many suggestions for how to study their `nearby' history. This book is an essential research tool for your work! -- Ann McCleary, professor of history, coordinator, Public History and Museum Studies Programs, University of West Georgia All students, regardless of their prospective fields, need to understand how to extract and evaluate information from various types of source materials. This new edition of Nearby History provides fresh, practical strategies for approaching historical research, as well as engaging in analytical methods and the writing process. It helps students to be able to connect the 'hows' and 'whys' in the world around them, which is an invaluable skill in any profession. -- Amanda Goldberg, St. Andrews University English Professor The fourth edition of Nearby History offers an invaluable introduction to historical methodology for all students of American history. Cebula's substantive revisions-the new chapter introductions, and discussions of digital history and changes in historical practice-are integrated seamlessly into Kyvig and Marty's classic work. The final chapter, a guide on how to locate and evaluate print and digital secondary sources, is a particularly welcome change. I plan to use this edition in both my undergraduate and graduate methods courses. -- A. Glenn Crothers, Associate Professor of History, University of Louisville
