"His delight is, in fact, a delight in learning."

The man and his books


So I'm a fan of historian David Hackett Fischer. There, I said it.

(I've also posted about his work here and here. And highly recommend both books of his that I've read: Historians' Fallacies and Paul Revere's Ride.)

Now I wish I had the time to finish his three-hour 2004 interview on C-SPAN's BookTV.

It's almost enough to make me want to go back to school to study and teach history.
