    Probably better stuff than the “history” now being taught. Hang onto those pre1990 history books!

    Most history taught these days seems to be revisionist.
    I trust revisionist even less than the original… revisionists tend to have their own axes to grind.

    This has probably been asked before, but can someone please explain how a fox can have a dragon for a father?

    Two truisms of history: the victorious write history books, and people never learn from history.

    There are far more historians trying to dig up the real truth than ever before in history. Some are revisionist.
    Some are honestly tring to find truth, but are labeled revisinist anyway.
    As in all things, youmust consider the source, and decide if thay have an agenda beyond truth.

    As in all things, if you have your own agenda, you won’t believe the truth.

    I would imagine that in Llewellyn’s history books, St. George is a war criminal

    I always judged the quality of my history class by the number of presidents listed in the back of the book and weather or not the map of the world still had USSR and east/west Germany. Some times I would look and it would list Jimmy Carter as the current President. If I ever saw less then 50 Stars on an American Flag you knew the class was in trouble.

    All most history is written as if it never really happened. I threw Herodotus across the room a couple times, so he’d behave his self. He didn’t, and yet I had to keep reading on.

    bad call KK. Date has nothing to do with understanding people at flash point as they understood themselves.

    Ghetto life never came home until I read a 1st person account of an 8-year-old winning the right to walk down the sidewalk unmolested. No father, no protection, no one to help. He had to go to the store to get groceries, but the other kids in his class kept beating him up and taking the money. And they were laying wait for him. His mother gave him a bat, and locked him outside the door. She refused to open the door until he had the groceries. Remember 8-years-old,… he knew he was outnumbered, and filled with the horrible fear of what would happen to him if he stopped swinging the bat.

    History is rarely written by the winners. Usually it’s someone who wants to write a history, often to note some major event or events that they were involved in, such as herodotus or pliny or Josephus, or Dr. Luke, or it’s someone deliberately trying to deceive, such as much of the junk from the 1990s on and a period in the 1920s.
    .
    For example, a book called “Meet General Grant” in the 1920s written by a southerner who admired grant, but hated Lincoln. His history of Grant was pretty good, agreeing with other sources. His “history” of Lincoln was mainly hearsay rumors. While the latter was interesting and gave a sideways look into what many Southerners thought of Lincoln after the Civil War, I’d never trust it for facts on Lincoln.
    .
    Speaking of Dr. Luke, it’s suspected that the book of Acts was written up as a defense of the Apostle Paul the first time he went to the Caesar for judgement. It was apparently common for Romans to do that. If true, it would explain the painstaking care that Acts and perhaps the book of Luke are written in, giving us a first hand look at events that other historians mention, but not in depth.
    .
    One of the fascinating things about Josephus’ works is that they blow some of our ideas of women’s roles out of the water. Doctors who were women. Women civil leaders. Businesswomen. Etc. It was not unusual, but to listen to feminists today, one would think that every culture was like the mongols.

    Sorry NG can’t trust post tramatic stress historian on anything but actual cause of the stress. Z his self is good case study; he was there; he never left.
