AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Writing good history is a high-wire act of balance and grace. Historians scour their own societies for vestiges of past worlds, for cracks and fissures in the pavement of the present, and for the shimmers and hauntings of history in everyday action.

'In The Art of Time Travel, eminent historian and award-winning author Tom Griffiths explores the craft of discipline and imagination that is history. Through portraits of fifteen historians at work, including Inga Clendinnen, Judith Wright, Geoffrey Blainey and Henry Reynolds, he observes how a body of work is constructed out of a life-long dialogue between past evidence and present experience.

'Riveting, beautiful and elegantly written, this landmark book conjures fresh insights into the history of Australia and revitalises our sense of the historian’s craft – what Tom Griffiths calls “the art of time travel”.' (Publication summary)

'A hundred years ago Germans described England as "the land without music", wrongly. But perhaps Australia could be termed the land without history. We have our commemorations, increasingly dominated by Anzac Day, and there is the ever-growing interest in family history. But - for ill as much as an unburdened good - historical consciousness does not inform our lives. ...'
