By (author)RICHARD COHEN

 3,595

Epic, authoritative and entertaining, Making History delves into the lives of those who have charted human history ? professional historians, witnesses, novelists, journalists and propagandists? to discover the agendas that informed their world views, and which in so many ways have informed ours. From the origins of history-writing through to television and the digital age, Making History abounds in captivating figures brought to vivid life, from Thucydides and Tacitus to Voltaire and Gibbon, from Winston Churchill to Mary Beard. Rich in character, complex truths and surprising anecdotes, the result is a unique exploration of both the aims and craft of history-making that will lead us to think anew about our past and ourselves.
