Description
What if Thucydides had written smut instead of history? What began as a minor literary genre in ancient Greece stands today as perhaps the most successful monument to the global spread of Western civilization, rivaling even science in its ubiquity. Yet it was far from inevitable, argues Colin Wells. In this accessible and lively biography of history as a living idea, Wells moves forward through the ages to show how the great historians and their works have changed our understanding of history, and why "history" itself is a startlingly fluid concept, with an evolutionary course—a history—all its own.
