What is History? by Edward Hallett Carr

Book Description

E.H. Carr's What Is History? is the classic introduction to the theory of history. Exploding the Victorian myth of history as a simple record of fact, Carr draws on sources from Nietzsche to Herodotus to argue for a more subtle definition of history as "an unending dialogue between the present and the past". Lively, scholarly and challenging, this book is essential reading for anyone interested in the meaning of history and its role in society.
