“This is a very fine collection of essays. The goal of this volume is clearly to showcase the diversity of the scholarly work that has been inspired by Sabean’s approach to history, the kinds of questions he has asked of his sources, and his ability to penetrate to the heart of submerged or overlooked discourses and life-worlds.” · George Williamson, Florida State University
