Where else can one find, in one book, the scope what A People's History does except in A People's History? I love that man. In the coming years, he will be missed . . . and often cited.

Yeah, I've always been a little amazed by the opposition to him -- it's not like he argued that nothing you had ever been taught was true, he just focused on the stories that never get told, to offset the idea that it's only a select club of Great Men who have made history.

I did at least enjoy seeing that Digby called him a "liberal historian", only to get immediately corrected by about ten commenters on the difference between leftists and liberals.
