Michael Frisch and "A Shared Authority"

Michael Frisch does not yet have a Wikipedia entry to himself, unlike Don Ritchie and Alessandro Portelli, our other favorite oral history rock stars. We really have to get on that one of these days....

Thanks to a recently published book, however, Letting Go? Sharing Historical Authority in a User-Generated World, there is a new Wikipedia entry that expounds on the concept clarifies what is meant by the iconic title of Mike's seminal book, A Shared Authority. Mike is quoted under the "Criticisms" section of the Wikipedia page "Shared Historical Authority".
