Book summary

Who Owns History? testifies to Eric Foners lifelong personal commitment to writing histories that advance the struggle for racial equality and economic justice. David Glassberg, The Sunday Star-Ledger

History has become a matter of public controversy, as Americans clash over such things as museum presentations, the flying of the Confederate flag, and reparations for slavery. So whose history is being written? Who owns it?

Eric Foner answers these and other questions about the historians relationship to the world of the past and future in this provocative, even controversial, study of the reasons we care about historyor should.
