            In Defence of History (EPUB ebook)

            By Evans, Professor of European History Richard J

            "A lucid, muscular, and often sly reflection" on the worth and purpose of historical scholarship by the award-winning author of The Third Reich Trilogy (Kirkus).In this volume, the renowned historian Richard J. Evans offers a fervent and deeply insightful defense of his craft and... its importance to civilization. At a time when fact and historical truth are under unprecedented assault, Evans shows us why history is necessary. Taking us into the historians' workshop, he offers a firsthand look at how good history gets written. In staunch opposition to the wilder claims of postmodern historians, Evans thoroughly dismantles the notion that a realistic grasp of history is impossible to attain. He then goes on to explain the deadly political dangers of losing a historical perspective on the way we live our lives. In the tradition of E.H. Carr's What Is History? and G.R. Elton's The Practice of History, Evans' In Defense of History delivers "a model of lucid and intelligent historiographical analysis" (The Guardian, UK).

            This volume offers an introduction to the life and work of the 3rd-century-AD Greco-Roman senator and historian Cassius Dio, whose work, although imperfectly preserved in 80 books, is of fundamental importance to our understanding of Roman history. It is often said that due to th...e sheer size of his Roman history, Dio's analysis is often superficial and imprecise. It has also been assumed that there was no political agenda behind the work, and that Dio's principle value to us is as a reliable copyist, who mediated the works of other, often better sources. This introduction to his life and work offers a different picture. Here, Dio is presented through his Greek cultural lens, as a politician with a clear vision for how Roman politics and government should be organized. Carefully selected examples are the starting points for fresh critical analysis of Dio's work and its legacy, both in antiquity and through to the Enlightenment. The book assumes no familiarity with Cassius Dio, his writing or context. All text is translated and suggested further reading points readers towards avenues for more detailed study.
