The killing of history : how literary critics and social theorists are murdering our past by Keith Windschuttle ( Book )
24 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 1,106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For 2,500 years, since the time of Herodotus and Thucydides, historians have sought to record the truth about the past. Today, however, the discipline is suffering a potentially lethal attach from the rise to prominence of an array of French-inspired literary and social theories, each of which denies that truth and knowledge about the past are possible. These theories claim the central point on which history was founded no longer holds: there is no fundamental distinction between history and myth or between history and fiction. Historians in classrooms from Berkeley to Paris have embraced these views, and an increasing number of literary critics and social theorists now feel free to define their own work as history and to call themselves historians. The result is revolutionary: historians have not only changed how history is taught, they are also increasingly obscuring the very facts on which the truth must be built. In The Killing of History, Keith Windschuttle offers both a devastating expose of the absurdity of these developments and a defense of the integrity of Western intellectual traditions which are now so widely attacked. Windschuttle examines exactly what is being taught about Columbus' discovery of the New World; the history of asylums and prisons in Europe; the fall of Communism in 1989; and the Battle of Quebec in 1759. He offers a much needed defense of traditional history as a properly scientific endeavor and argues that the great works of history should still be regarded as among the finest forms of Western literature

Stolen generations : the pocket Windschuttle by Tony Thomas ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Until Keith Windschuttle published his critical history of the stolen generations, allegations that Australian governments once had a racist agenda to remove Aboriginal children from their parents had never been closely scrutinized to see if the archival records confirmed their truth. Author and journalist Tony Thomas thought Windschuttle's huge, forensically detailed work deserved a more publicaly accessible version. So he rewrote it in thirteen no-frills chapters, each the length of a newspaper feature article, to produce this pocket edition."--Back cover
