520    Recent history--the very phrase seems like an oxymoron. 
       Yet historians have been writing accounts of the recent 
       past since printed history acquired a modern audience, and
       in the last several years interest in recent topics has 
       grown exponentially. With subjects as diverse as Walmart 
       and disco, and personalities as disparate as Chavez and 
       Schlafly, books about the history of our own time have 
       become arguably the most exciting and talked-about part of
       the discipline. Despite this rich tradition and growing 
       popularity, historians have engaged in little discussion 
       about the specific methodological, political, and ethical 
       issues related to writing about the recent past. The 
       twelve essays in this collection explore the challenges of
       writing histories of recent events where visibility is 
       inherently imperfect, hindsight and perspective are 
       lacking, and historiography is underdeveloped. Those who 
       write about events that have taken place since 1970 
       encounter exciting challenges that are both familiar and 
       foreign to scholars of a more distant past, including 
       suspicions that their research is not historical enough, 
       negotiation with living witnesses who have a very strong 
       stake in their own representation, and the task of working
       with new electronic sources. Contributors to this 
       collection consider a wide range of these challenges. They
       question how sources like television and video games can 
       be better utilized in historical research, explore the 
       role and regulation of doing oral histories, consider the 
       ethics of writing about living subjects, discuss how 
       historians can best navigate questions of privacy and 
       copyright law, and imagine the possibilities that new 
       technologies offer for creating transnational and 
       translingual research opportunities. Doing Recent History 
       offers guidance and insight to any researcher considering 
       tackling the not-so-distant past.
