Thinking of writing a history? Or commissioning one? Local historians, church and institutional historians, genealogists, thesis-writers, and the people who commission them will welcome "How To Do Local History". It is a brief and lively introduction to historical research, writing and publishing by a leading historian. This book explains how to use books and archives, and is full of practical tips on 'reading' the landscape, on oral history and on using illustrations effectively. The last chapter takes historians and their clients through the intricacies of internet and conventional publishing, using case studies of real books to explain terminology, scheduling, design, costing and selling. Although written for a New Zealand audience, readers in other countries will also find it useful. 96pp.
