Practice of History PDF
by G.R. Elton
It is sometimes said that historians and historiographers are like a married couple who lived together but speak to each other. Elton was a respected historian who blieved in marshalling the historical facts. Historiography was little more than ascertaining those facts and placing them in a logical order. It is all apparently very rational. What is excluded from this paradigm is any scholarly understanding of the politics and culture of the historian. It's as if the historian is seen as someone outside history itself looking in, but not acutally part of history or shaped by it.
