Quotation of the Day

Dr. John Lukacs

“…more disheartening was the reaction of many historians to the New Left revisionists of the 1960s, when the scholarship of those books was wanting.  As Maddox [Robert] wrote, “Reviewers who had been known to pounce with scarcely disguised glee on some poor wretch who incorrectly transcribed a middle initial or date of birth have shown a most extraordinary reluctance to expose even the most obvious New Left fictions,” including false statements of fact to which tens of thousands of students were subsequently exposed in American colleges and universities.” ― Remembered Past; On History, Historians, and Historical Knowledge, by John Lukacs, Chapter I, Page 150, edited by Mark G. Malvasi and Jeffrey O. Nelson, ISI Books, Wilmington, Delaware, © 2005 ISI Books.
