writing history volume 3: a collection by new writers
the story in history . . .
These stories offer models of original, engaging, research-based history writing, with topics as diverse as the Partition of India, residential schools, body art, Vincent van Gogh and the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
The pieces in this collection combine personal observation with intellectual analysis, close observation with detailed research, and the satisfaction of knowledge with the excitement of inquiry. The writers tell stories about what happened, what it felt like and how we know about it. They remind us why history is interesting and why it matters.
