The Heritage Crusade and the Spoils of HistoryBook - 1996
Discusses how heritage has grown in the last quarter of the 20th century from a small preoccupation into a major popular crusade. The text explains the rise of the obsession with the past and examines the implications for everything from Disneyland to the Holocaust Museum, from the Balkan wars to the Northern Irish Troubles, from Elvis memorabilia to the Elgin Marbles - all of which bear the marks of the cult of heritage.
