This book is based on an in-depth filmed conversation between Howard Burton and eminent historian David Cannadine, Princeton University. This thoughtful conversation includes an examination of different aspects of the societal role of both history and historians while rejecting the simplifying distortions of the historical record that we are regularly presented with. David also provides behind-the-scenes insights into several of his bestselling books, including The Undivided Past: Humanity Beyond Our Differences.

This carefully-edited book includes an introduction, Imposing Order, and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter:

I. Finding One’s Historical Feet - Merging subjective and objective

II. The Art of Biography - Trevelyan, Mellon, George V and more

III. The Undivided Past - The origins of a deliberately provocative venture

IV. Transcending Parochialism - The value of history

V. Categorical Examinations - The utility of boxes

VI. Historical Broadening - Changing practices

VII. What to Do, Part I - Advising presidents and educating Princetonians

VIII. What to Do, Part II - Harnessing technology
