Product description

In 1963, distinguished historian Samuel Eliot Morison was awarded the first Balzan Prize in History, a prize that rivals the Nobel Prize in splendor and munificence. Receiving the award in Rome, he delivered an address, "The Experiences and Principles of an Historian," which is included in this book along with a fascinating account of the award ceremonies. Drawing extensively from his own published work to illustrate how a master historian deals with a variety of problems, he includes examples from social history, biography, political history, and military history.
