Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to study what is characteristic for popular historical writing. The purpose is also to both problematize popular history and to see its abilities, which leads to the essay's focus on historical literacy and the popular historical writing's capacity to attach to its own contemporary. The essay aims to study the response that three popular history books got after their publication, partly from historians in the academic world, partly from the public. The essay also aims to study how one can use popular history as a teacher during class, focusing on the curriculum that applies for high school.

The result of this study shows several characteristic aspects for popular historical writing. The three popular history books are attaching to their own contemporary numerous times. It also shows that the response that the books got after their publication were mainly critical from historians in the academic world. The response that the books got from the public can be summarized as both critical and acclaiming. The result of this study also shows that popular history can be well used in educational purposes in areas of teaching that concern both use of history and source critisicm.
