Read full description of the books:



History is useful when it is used properly: to understand why we and those we must deal with think and react in certain ways. It can offer examples to inform our decisions and guesses about the consequences of our actions. But we should be wary of looking to history for dogmatic lessons.We should distrust those who abuse history when they call on it to justify unreasonable claims to land, for example, or restitution. MacMillan illustrates how dangerous history can be in the hands of nationalistic or religious or ethnic leaders who use it to foster a sense of grievance and a desire for revenge.

Reviews of the The Uses and Abuses of History


JOSHUA

The book that found the answer to my question

JACK

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.

EMILY

Why do you ask me to drive a phone?

OSCAR

After this book, I look at the world with different eyes!

DARCEY

A hard book, obviously not for everyone.
