Bob Souer narrates this academic study of the writing of history and its subsequent and inevitable revisions. Beginning with Herodotus and Thucydides, Eusebius and other church fathers, the work progresses rapidly through the late eighteenth century and on to the early 21st, focusing mostly on historians of the French Revolution and the American Civil War. Souer maintains a continuous recitation of names, dates, and in-depth discussions of historical works with few pauses for listeners to cogitate over concepts and theories. Souer rarely shifts tone or pace when reading quotations, making listeners uncertain when they end. Those familiar with historiography will find this work an excellent review. For others, Souer's nonstop reading may be daunting. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2021]
