Footnote: A Curious History
Anthony Grafton (au)
For the historian, footnotes are essential. Anthony Graftonís celebrated history shines a light on the many dark recesses of literary & historical scholarship, on the deviousness of generations of scholars, & on the solid methods they devised, sometimes despite themselves. A delightful & learned book, written by someone with a talent for showing how apparently abstruse, scholarly matters really do affect the way we think. What Grafton is getting at is nothing less than an examination of where the truth resides in history books; & when scholars start arguing about the truth, politicians, church authorities & the like follow, with often lethal consequences. A study of scholarly methods & origins, wittily dry & slightly sly, & wholly entertaining.
