In this landmark, critically acclaimed book, eminent historian and award-winning author Tom Griffiths explores the craft of history. Through portraits of fourteen historians, including Inga Clendinnen, Judith Wright, Geoffrey Blainey and Henry Reynolds, he traces how a body of work is formed out of a life-long dialogue between past evidence and present experience.
