Book excerpt: According to the author, history in the late twentieth century is in the clutches of literary and social theorists who have little respect for or training in the discipline. The author believes that they deny the existence of truth and substitute radically chic theorizing for real knowledge about the past. The result is revolutionary and unprecedented: contemporary historians are increasingly obscuring the facts on which truth about the past is built. In this book, the author offers an exposé of these developments.
