Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From thoughtful pieces on the historian's role to striking insights into America's past and present to trenchant observations on the international scene, Barbara W. Tuchman looks at history in a unique way and draws lessons from what she sees. Here is a splendid body of work, the story of a lifetime spent "practicing history."

Review:

"Persuades and Enthralls...I can think of no better primer for the nonexpert who wishes to learn history." Chicago Sun-Times

Review:

"Provocative, Consistent, and Beautifully Readable, an event not to be missed by history buffs." The Baltimore Sun

Review:

"A book to celebrate....A delight to read." New York Times Book Review
