Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe:

The Killing of History reveals how the trendy academics have garbled the European discovery of America, the Spanish conquest of Mexico, and other topics in an attempt to deny that truth and knowledge about the past are possible. What emerges is an important lesson in the separation of fact from fiction that will do much to rescue history as we know it--and teach it.

Rezension: Australian scholar Keith Windschuttle is one of the fieriest participants in the debate about the practice of history. In The Killing of History he decries the growth of so-called cultural studies in place of the old-fashioned facts-and-chronologies approach. Windschuttle's passion sometimes carries him a bit too far, but he lands many solid punches, such as when he takes on the heavily published French scholar Michel de Certeau, who has called writing a tool of the power elite. "For someone who thinks writing is a form of oppression," Windschuttle twits, "he has done a lot of writing." Elsewhere Windschuttle attacks efforts to explain away such matters as human sacrifice among the Aztecs, saying that to accept such behavior is akin to "accepting the cultures of Nazi Germany and Stalinist Russia as equal but different."
