Customer Review

on 15 June 2009
I bought this book thinking it was about history. I was mistaken. This is no fault of the author, who writes very well; but what he writes about (at least in this book) is not history, it is the study of history. He has a lot to say, and says it well, about how history has been studied, is studied, and ought to be studied. Embedded in this are fascinating little nuggets, generally no more than two sentences long, of actual history. But this is not what I was looking for. I accept that this is my fault, so I can't rate it badly; but be warned.
