Imperfect Past: History in a New Light

Pre-Order NOW for November delivery!  


    The late southern writer John Egerton once observed that there are three kinds of history: what actually happened, what we are told happened, and what we finally come to believe happened. It is that third type that author Charles F. Bryan, Jr., addresses in many of the essays in Volume 2 of Imperfect Past: History in a New Light. As he did in Volume 1, Bryan challenges many of the assumptions about the past that he and his generation were taught in school some sixty years ago. A once simplistic story has become more complex, but at the same time, more compelling and provocative. Volume 2 of Imperfect Past is a compilation of some eighty essays he wrote as regular columns for the Richmond Times-Dispatch from 2016 until mid-2021.
