Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At home in the eighteenth and the twentieth centuries, Robert Darnton is a shrewd and entertaining guide to the shifting borderlands of history and culture. These wide-ranging essays appear under various headings: "Current Events" --this section includes the wonderful story of the moment in 1792 when all the delegates in the French Legislative Assembly kissed each other; "Media," on television, pounding a newspaper beat, and tips to academics on how to get a book published; "The Printed Word," with an essay on the history of books; "The Lay of the Land," on aspects of intellectual history; and "Good Neighbors," on the relation of history to literature anthropology, and the sociology of knowledge.

Synopsis:

"Learned and lively essays. . . . Each subject [Darnton] investigates--from the history of reading to Andrzej Wajda's film 'Danton'--has its own fascination." --

Synopsis:

This is a book about history, the media, and the history of the media.In four parts this book will go through how the past operates as an undercurrent in the present, analyze the operation of the media by specific case studies, outline a particular discipline; the history of the book, which provides a historical dimension to media studies, and lastly, to move outward from those considerations to a broad discussion of history itself and of history's neighbors within the human sciences.

About the Author

Robert Darnton is Shelby Cullom Davis Professor of European History at Princeton University. He is the author of many books, including The Great Cat Massacre and The Kiss of Lamourette. This major work begins his reinterpretation of the French Revolution.
