I found this book to be very interesting. It covers a wide variety of subjects: The Strange Death of Silas Deane; The View from the Bottom Rail (oral history and the freedpeople): The Mirror with a Memory which is a chapter on early photographic evidence of cameras themselves and photos taken on life in the late 1800's. Filled with information that a history buff would enjoy!!!!
This is a very interesting analysis of the process of historical writing. It shows how those who write history, like the rest of us, are influenced by their own experience and perspective, and the impact that influence may have on the "hard facts." I found it very interesting and a helpful tool to better understand the limits of all we are told is true.
