Historical Knowledge, Historical Error by Allan Megill Historical Knowledge, Historical Error, Paperback (March 2007)

Historians have chronicled language, madness, gender, and sexuality and have experimented with fresh forms of presentation. This work suggests that there is confusion among historians about what counts as a justified account of the past. It dispels some of the confusion, and also discusses issues of narrative, objectivity, and memory.
