The Undivided Past: History Beyond our Differences by David Cannadine

Reviewed by

David Cannadine is a distinguished transatlantic historian, the author of books on modern Britain and its empire, the biographer of G.M. Trevelyan and Andrew Mellon, and he recently wrote a perceptive account of the persistent anxiety over school history. An iconoclastic thinker and urbane stylist, Cannadine excels in the extended essay that overturns a conventional interpretation. These qualities are evident in this book, which derives from the Trevelyan Lectures he delivered at Cambridge in 2007.
