Description

Master historian Barbara W. Tuchman looks at history in a unique way and draws lessons from what she sees. This accessible introduction to the subject of history offers striking insights into American's past and present, trenchant observations on the international scene, and thoughtful pieces on the historian's role. History should not just be a series of facts, names, and dates--it should be a flowing narrative, the story of humanity, written as vividly as a novel. Here is a splendid body of work, the story of a lifetime spent "practicing history."show more
