Publisher Comments:

Well-known public historian Robert Archibald's personal exploration of the intersections of history, memory, and community reveals how we participate in the making and sustaining of community as well as how we remember the community that shaped us. Writing in a rich literary narrative, Archibald blends local history, personal reminiscence, and an analysis of the changing meaning of community with a passionate call for more effective public history. A Place to Remember poetically illustrates how we are active participants in the past and the role and importance of history in contemporary life.

Book News Annotation:

Archibald has been president of the Missouri Historical Society for a decade, and of other such organizations previously. He combines local history, personal reminiscence, and an analysis of the changing meaning of community to describe how people participate in making and sustaining community and remembering the community that shaped them. He provides no index.
