I can’t quite remember when I first fell in love with history. It was certainly before I became “credentialed” as a historian, but also before I became fully conscious of my competing—and often conflicting—responsibilities as a scholar and writer, teacher and troublemaker. I suppose one origin of such things dates back to when I first learned to listen to other people’s stories.
