Description

John Vincent's comprehensive examination of the evolution of history as a discipline and its underlying philosophy is essential reading for anyone interested in the history they were never taught in the classroom.Exploring the nature of historical evidence, meaning and imagination, together with morality, causality, bias and hindsight, Professor Vincent gets to the very heart of the complex issues raised, writing with trademark wit and lucidity to provide a compelling and controversial guide.show more
