In Defense of History / Edition 1by Richard J. Evans
Pub. Date: 12/15/1998
Publisher: Norton, W. W. & Company, Inc.
Following in the steps of E.H. Carr's classic What Is History?, Richard J. Evans shows us how historians manage to extract meaning from the recalcitrant past. To materials that are frustratingly meager, or overwhelmingly profuse, they bring an array of tools that range from agreed-upon rules of documentation and powerful computer models to the skilled investigator's sudden insight, all employed with the aim of reconstructing a verifiable, usable past.
