How we study history
- If I may be permitted a slight digression, I am wondering if anyone has read
Apologies to Thucydides: Understanding History as Culture and Vice Versa
Sahlins. University Of Chicago Press (December 1, 2004)
Sahlins is an anthropologist, and it happens that he was on my dissertation
committee. I took several courses from him while we were both at the
University of Michigan. He is a deep thinker, but not an easy read.
I have not yet read this book, but a number of Sahlins' books published
since I left Michigan are shouldering their way onto my reading list.
