Synopsis: Two connected issues of pressing intellectual and practical importance are addressed by Nick Merriman in this book; what does the past mean to the general public; and why do certain social groups exclude themselves from institutions, like museums, which explain the past and connect it to the present?
Central to the book's answers to these questions is a nation-wide survey which measured public use of and attitudes to the past, and to museums, historic buildings, archaeology and collecting. The author reviews this research in the light of contemporary theory on ideology and representation and goes on to develop a convincing explanation for the failure of museums and similar institutions to connect with the majority of the public.
Finally, he marshals the empirical and theoretical work to make a powerful case for a new approach to attract the outsiders; one which encourages a view of the museum as a service helping its public to see, understand and engage with its own personal, local and multi-faceted past.
