The Purpose of the Past

A review of Gordon Wood's new book, The Purpose of the Past.

I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but it's a welcome reality check for historians, written by a living master. Gordon Wood also wrote "The Creation of the American Republic," THE book on the American constitution and one of the "classics" of history writing in the 20th century.
