On the Teaching and Writing of History. Responses to 2 Series of Questions.
Bailyn, Bernard; Lathem, Edward Connery
This presentation of informal responses to a series of questions relating to teaching and writing of history is based upon and extends from two tape-recorded "Conversations" with Professors Jere R. Daniell and Charles T. Wood of the Dartmouth College Department of History. The book covers such questions as what a historian is, why one should study history, how one should teach history at the various learning levels, history textbooks, historical scholarship, social history, the difficulty of recovering historical contexts, and historical fiction.
