Carr’s What is History? has long been read by students, helped no doubt by the fact that it is very short. Much of its argument has long since passed out of current thinking and, on its own, it is perhaps an inadequate introduction to historiography, as Carr would doubtless have been the first to admit.

The facts are really not at all like fish on the fishmonger's slab.
