A triumph of a seasoned, well educated historian!

This difficult but vital topic is rarely attempted, let alone executed so well.
Carr takes us through the ancient, medieval and modern eras of history. He reviews what many of the majority of historians thought of history. In so doing, he examines history as facts, the relationship of society to the individual, the impact of science and religion, the focus on causation and progress, and the broadening of history in incorporating new disciplines as well a in geography and class.

Well worth a read and time spent in reflecting on Carr's views.
