HISTORIANS' FALLACIES : TOWARD A LOGIC OF HISTORICAL THOUGHT by David Hackett Fischer

WHY I LIKE IT
If you are learning to research and write history from primary source material, until you've read this book here' my advice: Don't do it! Stop, buy this book and heed its wise words. Fischer's excellent volume will spare you the acrimony of commandeering history to support a paper-thin thesis. Fischer guides the reader through the many ways history is often used in dishonest and inconsistent ways, and he shows you a much more excellent way to research and write about the past.

"If one laughs when David Hackett Fischer sits down to play, one will stay to cheer. His book must be read three times: the first in anger, the srcond in laughter, the third in respect....The wisdom is expressed with a certin ruthlessness. Scarcly a major historian escapes unscathed. Ten thousand members of the AmericanHistorical Association will rush to the index and breathe a little easier to find their names absent.
