In Quest of Truth and Justice : de-bunking the war-guilt myth / Harry Elmer Barnes

£8.99

Product description

This book is in very good condition. The blue cloth cover is slightly marked, but otherwise in very good condition. Internally the pages are in very good condition - clean, tight and unmarked.

Excerpt from In Quest of Truth and Justice: De-Bunking the War Guilt Myth:-
"In other words, the writer possesses the training to enable him to pursue independent research in this field and to estimate the validity of the researches of others and he has thoroughly studied the sources and monographs bearing on the crisis of 1914. He has chosen, how ever, for two very definite reasons, to act in addition as an organizer and interpreter of the facts gathered by others. The first is that there are many more men working on contemporary diplomatic history as specialists, uninterested in and unqualified for general ex position of the body of facts as a whole, than there are who are de voting themselves to the task of expounding the significance of the work the specialists are doing or who have talent for this sort of edu cational endeavor. In the second place the writer believes that at the present stage of the work there is more need for popular exposition than there is for esoteric research and he regards himself as relatively better adapted to general synthesis and controversy than to abstruse and detailed research. There is a desirable division of labor here which requires mutual esteem and in no sense calls for depreciation. Research without potent exposition is essentially futile; while argu mentation without information is little more than congressional de bating or political campaigning."
