The abuse of history
The powers being used to manipulate the past

First Edition
Edited by:


April 2018 | SAGE Publications Ltd

The latest magazine explores how a new phase in the use and abuse of  history is happening around the world, how leaders are manipulating historical narratives to bolster their political support or build up their image. With reports from South Africa, Colombia, Japan, China, Spain and Turkey among others.

 

Includes interviews with Margaret McMillan, Neil Oliver and Lucy Worsley, plus how history is back in schools in Colombia, and how families of the forgotten victims of Spain's General Franco are still fighting for recognition. Plus an interview with comedian Mark Thomas, an article by actor Simon Callow about censorship in theatre, and a new short story by award-winning novelist Christie Watson.
