Description - The Logic of History by C. Behan McCullagh

Can we find a way to approach history with new confidence? McCullagh takes the history debate to a new stage with bold replies to the major questions historians face today. The Logic of History reveals the rational basis for historians' descriptions, interpretations and explanations of past events. McCullagh defends the practice of history as more reliable than has recently been acknowledged. Historians, he argues, make their accounts of the past as fair as they can and avoid misleading their readers. He explains and discusses postmodern criticisms of history, providing students and teachers of history with a renewed validation of their practice.
