THREE GREAT HISTORIANS: Winston Churchill, Barbara Tuchman and Fernand Braudel

Barbara TuchmanWho writes history and why is important in understanding the content of the work itself. The uses of the past are many, and these three historians, chosen for their differences, shed light on the multiple ways that history can inform our lives and serve wider aims. The focus will be on how their work reflects their motives and purposes as historians.

All three have achieved levels of greatness and we will try to determine what that means and why it is so.

Ned Rossiter taught history at Newton North for 33 years and was the history department head from 1976 until he retired in 2001. He has since taught in the Education Program at Brandeis University and is active helping to manage a community farm in his hometown of Weston.
