Where Medieval History and Radical Politics bumble into Each Other and have an Existential Crisis
One of the most interesting comments I ever heard was, I believe, at a Kalamazoo roundtable, "History is what Historians say it is." I wish I could remember who said it so I could attribute it to him or her. I was naive then - it (and the entire discussion) was an eye-opener.
No No, Curt. You haven't understood at all. History is what *I* say it is.
LOL - unfortunately, I've met at least one historian who I think honestly believes this.
