Going Public is New Zealand's first collection of essays to examine the rapidly growing field of public history. These short think-pieces by leading writers and scholars explore the connections between specific aspects of public history and the broader field of New Zealand history in general and show some new and challenging ways of looking at the past. The contributions cover new media, academic vs public history, the Waitangi Tribunal, Treaty claims research, official war history, government history, the origins of public history, museums, heritage, freelance research and writing, public history in popular culture, and state-funded reference histories.
