    Amber Ramos History 1000C Prof. Wang 5 December 2015 The Landscape of History How Historians Map The Past The novel The Landscape of History How Historians Map The Past by John Lewis Gaddis touches on subjects such as the idea of history and how historians assume things and about what’s to come in the future.

    Love For History

    • 350 Words
    • 2 Pages

    History is just a compilation of several compelling stories of the past put together. I love that I am able to learn intriguing and true stories about places, people, and events that I have never seen physically or experienced personally. History is very interactive and requires creative and attentive thinking to connect why and how occurrences took place the way they did. For instance, I did not fully understand why the Americans revolutionized against the British until I viewed their struggle…

    Discrimination In History

    • 1186 Words
    • 5 Pages

    When people hear the phrase “history repeats itself,” those who disagree argue that, by the definition of ‘repeat,’ it is impossible for history to precisely repeat. This is true, however, if you focus on ideology or sociology behind historical events, repetition is very common. Recurrence of history typically points back to broad patterns. “Another way to describe these patterns or relationships would be to describe them as cause and effect relationships” (Pegoda). These relationships are just…

    The Progression of History Books Throughout History History books have always been subjective; every generation has had a new generation of history books. Through his essay “Rewriting American History”, FitzGerald claims that each generation learns a new version of history. It has been shown through history books that the topic is very subjective; history is simply “his story”. New information arises throughout many years, decades, or centuries that provides context for past textbooks.…

    The History Craze Summary

    • 311 Words
    • 2 Pages

    While I was reading “The History Craze” by MacMillan, a traditional phrase in our country, Mongolia, “The man who does not know his history is the same as a monkey who is lost in the jungle”, came into my mind. In my view, the content of this chapter and the meaning of this phrase somehow match and make me want to reflect on them. MacMillan attempts to imply the importance of history as she mentions, “History has shaped humans’ values, their fears, their aspirations, their loves, and their…

The particular story shared in Chapter 2 shows us that some parts of the criminal justice system have resisted the change brought about by the restorative justice movement.…

    History and the past are two words that seem to go hand in hand. Unfortunately, when these words come up in conversation many people automatically reflect on their time in grade school when memorizing the capitals was the standard. The past though, is so much more than that, and the documented interviews contained within the pages of The Presense of the Past prove just that. Roy Rozenweig and David Thelen delve into the minds of Americans in an attempt to recognize how the public understands…

    Re-Thinking History by Keith Jenkins is a book that takes a critical look at writing history and how historians have individual approaches to history and the past. Jenkins creates a debate about theories, the definition of history, the question of truth, bias, and history as a science or as an art. He asks similar questions as John Tosh and John H. Arnold. All three challenge previous historians and theories. Jenkins even asks readers what method and ideology would they choose to follow, that of…
