Description: For many years, those who wrote and taught the narrative of American history promoted an idea of America as the land of the free and home of the brave. Later, a new history emerged, written in part by radicals and liberals who had little use for the noble and heroic. By the 1990s, history was a minefield of competing passions, political views, and prejudices. And at the end of the decade, four of the nation's most respected historians-Michael Bellesiles, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Stephen Ambrose, and Joseph Ellis-were almost destroyed by it. Now with a new chapter and a revised conclusion, Past Imperfect is a fascinating look at the challenges of historical interpretation, the issue of plagiarism, and history as a profession.
