Back into the Light


“History has been sucked into a black-hole called social-studies. I think that calls for the abolition of social-studies. This condition has reflected the reduction of history in school to commentaries on newspaper editorials. It’s really the old tradition of history being the instructional solution for a quandary of the weak.”

– Simon Schama
