The character of history, and the teaching of history in schools, colleges and universities, is a matter of concern and debate in Britain today. The controversy has been sharpened by the Government's decision to introduce a standardized National Curriculum for schools throughout the United Kingdom. The question of what history to teach and how to teach it has become a battleground and focused attention on important issues concerning the utility of history and its place in the nation's culture. These matters are addressed in this book by historians who grapple daily with the ways in which the past is reconstructed and passed on to future generations. The contributors are G.R.Elton, Roy Porter, Keith Robbins, William Lamont, J.C.D.Clark, Conrad Russell, Janet L.Nelson, Asa Briggs, Raphael Samuel, F.M.L.Samuel, P.J.Marshall, John Morrill, Michael Hunter, Alice Prochaska, Robert Thorne and Gordon Marsden. The book is intended for history students, teachers, parents and anyone else who is aware of the importance of the debate. Juliet Gardiner edited 'What is History Today?', was for four years editor of 'History Today' and reviews history for leading newspapers and periodicals.
