Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This volume comprises of three essays (dating from ~1966) from Harry Elmer Barnes (1889-1968) dealing with the historical place of WW2 and cold war revisionist history in the post-war period, specifically from the late 1940s to the early 1960s. It's about the way the new WW2 revisionism was historically received, not (at least not primarily) about the findings and assertions of the WW2 revisionists per se.

Although Barnes was primarily a sociologist, he was also a first class diplomatic historian of the first and second world wars. He was a prominent revisionist historian, challenging the "orthodox" or state sponsored interpretations of the victorious powers. Barnes' revisionism itself was part of his broader "progressive" perspective. He was in many ways an old fashioned Progressive who looked forward to the perfection, or at least, to the radical improvement of, the human condition. All through the application of science, rationality and democracy. Barnes regularly refers to the late 19th century utopia of Edward Bellamy's "Looking Backward", written in the year 1888 and set in the year 2000, it presents a vision of a rationalistic scientific utopian America, all based on collectively owned property. Barnes' heart is perhaps in Bellamy's imagined future. It may be that Barnes read Bellamy when still young.

Today we'd probably describe Barnes as a social democrat, a non-marxist democratic socialist humanist. He had a distinctively 'Scandanavian' vision for the future. Yet he was no party line ideologue.
