Records of Our National Life : American History from the National Archives

Description

With a mix of pithy, well focused essays, together with an illustrated chronology, this new volume published on the 75th anniversary of the National Archives is an attractive celebration of American history.

These essays deal with each individual's experiences and recollections of using the National Archives in the course of their own work, be it in the course of conducting research for a film, an article or TV documentary. With every page illustrated in colour this new publication is an informative and engaging commemoration of American nationhood.
