A Lover's Quarrel with the Past : Romance, Representation, Reading Hardback
by Ranjan Ghosh
Part of the Making Sense of History series
Although not a professional historian, the author raises several issues pertinent to the state of history today.Qualifying the "non-historian" as an "able" interventionist in historical studies, the author explores the relationship between history and theory within the current epistemological configurations and re-figurations.
He asks how history transcends the obsessive "linguistic" turn, which has been hegemonizing literary/discourse analysis, and focuses greater attention on historical experience and where history stands in relation to our understanding of ethics, religion, and the current state of global politics that underlines the manipulation and abuse of history.
