Product Description

In this sometimes contentious study, Professor Vincent goes to the very heart of the complex issues raised by the subject. An Intelligent Person's Guide to History provides a comprehensive examination of the philosophy and evolution of history. It explores the nature of historical evidence, meaning and imagination, together with morality, causality, bias and hindsight. This is a controversial work, packed with ideas. Penetrating, incisive and provocative, it will prove both a vital text for the scholar and a stimulating guide for the general reader. This revised paperback edition includes an account by the author of the critical reception that greeted the book' s original publication, and the controversy that it generated.
