Narrative in Unexpected Places.
Lytle, Mark
New England Journal of History, v48 n2 p23-30 Fall 1991
Proposes to return narrative to a more central place in historical writing. Answers critics who complain that history texts do not properly emphasize democracy and citizenship. Suggests using narrative to tell stories students will remember while including a major theme or conclusion. Warns against overuse, wordiness, and sacrifice of human detail. (DK)
