David Cannadine hat by striving to perfect yourselves therein you may prepare to ascent to Him. -Giuseppe Mazzini, quoted in W. V. Byars, e. The Handbook of Oratory: A Cyclopedia of Authorities on Oratory as an Art Our country is not the only thing to which we owe our allegiance. It is also owed to justice and humanity.

David Cannadine is one of Britain's most distinguished historians and this is his masterpiece. The Undivided Past is an agonised attempt to understand how so much of the writing of history has been driven by a fatal desire to dramatize differences - to create an 'us versus them'. Great works of history have so often had at their heart a wish to sift people in ways that have been profoundly damaging and provided the intellectual backing and justification for terrible political decisions.

Cannadine is unusual in having made an international reputation as a historian before the age of forty; and almost unique in having done so, not as the author of a big book which bowled over (etc) the profession with a revisionist thesis, but fundamentally on the strength of his own intellect and the force of his own personality. It is Cannadine’s ability to open up the big questions which distinguishes his approach. He is without fear, unawed alike by conventional disciplinary boundaries or established historical reputations. This is the way in which he has made his mark – and his enemies. Even his friends have good reason to be terrified.
