Excerpt:

‘To be truly honest with one's self as a historian or critic, to understand that history is an affective discipline governed as much by fantasy as by fact. To revel in the contemporary is to enjoy the immediacy of our critical and emotional capacities as they intersect in "real" time’.  William J. Simmons, University of Southern California
