Description

How did the world's great historians create their monumental histories? What are their unique motives and visions in doing so? And what role does the historian's viewpoint play in what you accept as truth? In Making History: How Great Historians Interpret the Past, veteran Teaching Company Professor Allen C. Guelzo takes you deep inside the minds of our greatest historians—including Herodotus, Thucydides, David Hume, and Edward Gibbon—as they write about and shape humanity's story. Told through enthralling historical anecdotes, these 24 lectures invite you to travel into mankind's fundamental desire to record and understand the complexities of the world.
