Where Is History?
Kors, Alan Charles
Academic Questions, v17 n3 p10-14 Sep 2004
Professor Kors allows that accurate research and rigorous interpretation still carry some weight in the discipline of history. He also notes that students tend to vote with their enrollment for honest teaching over indoctrination. Nevertheless he laments passionately and eloquently the tendentiousness that taints most of recent scholarship, whose findings seem predetermined by bitter ideological animosity toward the achievements of Western civilization.
