This series asks how we know about prominent individuals and events that occurred beyond living memory. Each volume in the series is split into two sections: the first section begins with a narrative that gives background details of what happened, why, who was involved and what resulted from the event. This is then backed up by the second section which highlights the difference between storytelling (historical narrative) and the presentation of historical evidence (primary and secondary sources) by examine the evidence that tells us that the event occurred.We may dream about running away to exotic lands or retreating to distant monasteries, but the whirligig of life wona#39;t let us out of its clutches.Michael Lipson offers a fresh way of looking at this old predicament.
