Abstract:

"In Making History, the first comprehensive survey of Warren's biographical narratives, Jonathan S. Cullick tracks a clear development toward autobiography in Warren's career. By applying narrative theory to that provocative trend, he then makes an intriguing discovery: Warren's discourse techniques dramatize his philosophy of history and ethics. Cullick unearths what might be called the "narrative syntax" of Warren's historical vision."--Jacket.
