From the publisher

In this celebrated work, Raphael Samuel takes issue with the claim that our obsession with heritage is a symptom of national decay. Instead, he argues that we live in an expanding historical culture, one which is newly alert to the evidence of the visual and altogether more pluralist than earlier versions of the national past.
