Summary
"A Restless Past carefully examines the ways in which the dynamic events of the second half of the twentieth century have significantly altered how historians approach the past and highlights the incredible power they hold in shaping a national identity. Through the considerable ideological shifts of the last half century, historians have responded by asking new questions about those who preceded us and creating powerful identities for those who had been long ignored."--BOOK JACKET
