What We’re Reading: August 27, 2009 Edition - American Historical Association
In the news this week, Senator Ted Kennedy has lost his fight against cancer, local officials will allow Walmart to build next to the Wilderness Battlefield, and a new historic preservation program is available at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Then we link to articles on historians and online identity theft, and best practices dealing with “orphan works.” We’ve collected a variety of book-related links this week, including, a review of Noralee Frankel’s Stripping Gypsy, Humanities E-book celebrating its 10th anniversary, History Today seeking your book reviews, news of sales of books on military history remaining steady, and the Wells Fargo staff’s history book picks. And finally, for fun, check out the history behind the FBI flags, learn about presidential vacations, and take a peek at decades old back-to-school photos.
