The Purpose Of The Past
Reflections On The Uses Of HistoryUnknown - 2011
While the nature of memory is constant, the nature of history has changed radically over the past forty years. In this book the author examines this sea change in his field through consideration of some of its most important historians and their works. Along the way, he offers wonderful insight into what great historians do, how they can stumble, and what strains of thought have dominated the marketplace of ideas in historical scholarship. The result is a history of American history--and an argument for its ongoing necessity.
