No Objective history?

A very interesting interview with historian Romila Thapar. There are three parts to this interview, with the third one yet to be published. But an insightful view on what drives the teaching of history. A lesson lies there in how our sense of history is shaped by those in power.

In the US of course, even science is not being spared.

Talking of ideologues, MSNBC won' t render a page correctly in Firefox. Copy-pasting the same URL in IE works perfectly. Not done, Bill. Well, we've been saying that for years. Fat lot of help it's been.

Was talking to a historian who is my neighbour about this article that I read.
He recommended reading Thapar's History of India, which according to him is the best book on Indian history
