A Very Gutsy Book,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Killing of History (Hardcover)
Windschuttle's book is a courageous effort to engage the forces of theory and post-structuralism that are destroying history as an area of interest to those outside academia's ivory tower / padded cell.
Besides taking on those who would deny the value of empirical history, Windschuttle deconstructs the decontsructionists.
Whilst the work of any human is always open to improvement, Keith Windschuttlle deserves the garlands and praise of students throughout the world - students who have had to bite their lips whilst the noble pursuit of historical truth has been perverted into yet another turgid, theoretical social science.
