An Incredibly Difficult Read,
This review is from: What is History Now? (Hardcover)
The book has got to be one of the hardest reads available on the subject. compared, to say Richard Evans' book 'In Defense of History', it is almost impossible to read.
the book also fails to explain many of the key aspects used within it and has a fragmentary feel to it. on the key aspect there is most notably no explanation of post modernism or its heavy inpact on modern history. the books different writers also make it hard to read as no two have the same tone.
i would advise against buying this book.
