AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In countering Stella Clarke's 'Havoc in History House', McKenna writes that Clarke 'trivialised my [McKenna's] arguments to make it appear as a simple battle between imaginative historical fiction and the noble boredom of "insecure academics" chipping away in the drudgery within "the orthodoxies of salaried history processing".' McKenna states that he has never claimed 'that history should be left to the historians', he is simply trying to 'remind us of the differences between fiction and history, and point to the dangers and consequences of confusing the two.'
