The Historian's Conscience

Stuart Macintyre
In The Historian's Conscience, Stuart Macintyre and thirteen other Australian historians put history and the history profession under the microscope.
Eminent contributors include Alan Atkinson, Graeme Davison, Greg Dening, John Hirst, Beverley Kingston, Marilyn Lake, and Iain McCalman.
They not only ask but answer the hard questions about writing and researching history. How do historians choose their histories? What sort of emotional investment do they make in their subjects, and how do they control their sympathies? How do they deal with unpalatable discoveries? To whom are historians responsible? And for whom are they entitled to speak?
Intellectually provocative, often personally revealing, always engaged, The Historian's Conscience is a 'must read'.
