The Truth of History is the kind of book that teachers of historiography and the philosophy of history have long waited for. In this lucid work, Behan McCullagh shows the reader what riches can result when philosophy and history are drawn together....
Marnie Hughes-Warrington, University of Washington
The considerable strengths of the book come from the thoroughness of the discussions, the judiciousness of the arguments, and, most of all, from the wide range of sources and examples he employs. McCullagh has gone to great lengths to find appropriate exemplifications of his points and to discuss actual cases of particular arguments and the use of particular theories. I believe his book will become a standard work, notable for its scholarship and careful, well written, arguments.
