From the preface: “Carl Becker, some thirty years ago, defined historiography as “that phase of [intellectual history] which records what men have at different times known and believed about the past, the use they have made, in the service of their interests and aspirations, of their knowledge and beliefs, and the under lying presuppositions which have made their knowledge seem to them relevant and their beliefs seem to them true”. This book is concerned with what five of the most significant historians of the post-World War II period have known and believed about the past. These brilliant members of their profession have also been the influential spokesmen for a generation whose interests and aspirations were directed toward furthering a liberal democracy.”
