Book Review: International Perspectives on Teaching Rival Histories: Pedagogical Responses to Contested Narratives and the History Wars edited by Henrik Åström Elmersjö, Anna Clark, and Monika Vinterek

Rachel D. Hutchins reviews International Perspectives on Teaching Rival Histories: Pedagogical Responses to Contested Narratives and the History Wars, edited by Henrik Åström Elmersjö, Anna Clark, and Monika Vinterek. She explores how the book addresses the perennial question, “How do, or should, teachers pedagogically engage with rival histories?” The book includes ten case studies, which are bounded by theoretical introductions and conclusions that connect pedagogic approaches with epistemological orientations to history. Hutchins appreciates the use of Seixas’ typology of history teaching—a “best story” approach, a “disciplinary” approach, and a “post-modern” approach— throughout the volume, which offers a productive framework for scholars and educators.
