"De Groot provides all students and practitioners of history with a fascinating overview of the diverse ways in which history is used by societies, and a nuanced understanding of both the rewards and challenges involved with representing the past to the public... The author's intellectual engagement with these topics is untouched by other publications." Michael F. Dove, University of Western Ontario, Canada "This is the only book that seriously addresses the relationship between history and popular culture in Britain today, and does so in an engaging, thoughtful and accessible way... the range of coverage in Consuming History is excellent." Catherine Fletcher, University of Sheffield, UK "This empirically rich, well-documented book surveys an impressively wide range of topics that the author divides into six often overlapping categories. De Groot (Univ. of Manchester, UK) concentrates heavily on the British experience and, in this second edition of a book first published in 2009, offers new topics, updated examples, and revised analyses. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." D. L. LeMahieu, Lake Forest College, USA, CHOICE Reviews
