Weekend reading

For those thinking of taking it up, the Guardian has a guide to doing family history. (Anybody who wants it is welcome to my paper copy, since I’m not likely to use it…)

Digital history in the 21st century, from Dave at Patahistory.

Germaine Greer is entertaining on why Mary Shelley really did write Frankenstein.

Never mind that Foucault fellow, it’s time for some Antonio Gramsci, on the 70th anniversary of his death.

Another link that got lost in my drafts folder: Atomic Platters: Cold War Music from the Golden Age of Homeland Security

And maybe some good news for independent bookshops.

I nearly forgot to link the first Military History Carnival. In my defence, I was a bit poorly this week.
