About the way history is used,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Uses and Abuses of History (Kindle Edition)
In a recent review of the book Catastrophe by Max Hastings I said that after the horrors of WW1 how could WW2 have been allowed to happen. Professor Macmillan's book provides the answer which alone makes it worth reading. It is a wide ranging review of the way history is seen and used inevitably with some emphasis on Canada, Macmillan's home country. Easy to read and well worth the effort.
