History isn’t just a subject: it’s the subject. So why aren’t we treating it that way?
Part personal essay, part investigation featuring commentary from leading educators and historians, The Vanishing Past is a heartfelt defence of a subject we malign at our peril and an impassioned manifesto for its restoration to the centre of education.
A lively, accessible primer for anyone interested in how we learn to be human–and how one subject, above all others, defines our very humanity.
