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.
