Real History will explore an idea/event from many different viewpoints and do a compare/contrast of that topic to draw conclusions.

    But nothing can be real history until 10 years passes before that it is Journalism. And the more time that goes by the better Historical perspective one can have on an event. Real, scholarly history does not view things from one point of view. But bad history does and it is usually bad history that gets around because reading real History books takes time and effort and most people couldn't care less.
    You may be right. I do occasionally find myself deferring to your wisdom on various things.

    Now I feel bad. I was just defending History, but really good History will try and see things from all angles. High School history is so one-sided and bland compared to college level history that I think many people get turned off it before they ever really see what history can be.
