Description
Who is to say how things really were? In formulating a modern answer to the question 'What is History?' Professor Carr shows that the 'facts' of history are simply those which historians have selected for scrutiny. Millions have crossed the Rubicon, but the historians tell us that only Caesar's crossing was significant. All historical facts come to us as a result of interpretative choices by historians influenced by the standards of their age. Yet if absolute objectivity is impossible, the role of the historian need in no way suffer; nor does history lose its fascination. This edition includes new material which presents the major conclusions of Professor Carr's notes for the second edition and a new preface by the author, in which he calls for ???a saner and more balanced outlook on the future'.

Nice read...

I studied this book as part of MA History syllabus. History is just not about dates and events. It needs interpretation with present and future in mind. Very well explained and simple!

The best? Wouldn't and couldn't say otherwise.

One of the best intellectually imagined work, not necessarily distinctive for the students of history, but humanity itself.

When you add psychology, behavioural science, a bit of spirituality and modern and ancient science with history, this is what the shake tastes like. Kudos Carr!
