Clearly, my early historiophilia was more rebellion than obsessive preoccupation with scholarly plots. These are rants about how we are socialized and the role of historiography as a propaganda tool, rather than any attempt to expose some real, dark, underworld scheme.

The villainy here is dangerous solely in that “only historians can betray all generations of the dead” (Nancy F. Partner) kind of way, rather than bringing actual death or dismemberment – obviously. The title is cheeky, then, instead of sensationalistic or melodramatic.My observations mean to be irreverent but honest – and sometimes sarcastic. I want to give the lie to any claim that American historical study is a science. In that it fails as such demonstrates how we like to delude ourselves: delusion as education.

We like to pretend that the shift to social science brought an end to mythologizing and gave us surer historiography (or Truth), but it just ain’t so. These are some of the lies we like to tell ourselves best.m[-_-]
