Why History Gets Rewritten II --How You Can't Even Trust Historians!


Conservative History Journal: Historians in denial: read it. The guy is dead-on, some of those late-Eighties histories (written immediately before the fall of the Iron Curtain) read as badly as Sivachev and Yakovlev's Russia and the United States, which came out during the heydey of the Brezhnev Era and is about as in-house a Soviet history as you'll find. A useful corrective to such palaver is John Lewis Gaddis's We Now Know --or even better, his revised The Cold War: A New History.
