Why study history? What??s the point? Through compelling historical narratives, such as the assassination of President Kennedy, Dr. David Nash introduces the central elements of the subject. Readers learn how history seeks to explain, categorize and make sense of events of the past. It is a search for truth which involves searching for sources and then scrutinizing them to try and determine how reliable they are. Nash explores how new interpretations can change our understanding of what was previously an established version of history and what lasting contribution the study of history can make to society and, indeed, civilization.
Ideal for those with an emerging interest in history, the book is designed to provide readers with a toolkit for further investigation of the subject.
