writing history volume 2: a collection by new writers
the story in history . . .
The thirty-five pieces in this volume combine personal observation with intellectual analysis, close observation with detailed research, and the satisfaction of knowledge with the excitement of inquiry.
They tell stories about what happened, what it felt like, and how we know about it. Above all they demonstrate why history is interesting and why it matters.
