GEM of the year: Mark Phillips on ‘distance’

2013 saw the long-awaited publication of On Historical Distance by Mark Salber Phillips. Mark visited us on several occasions, and we hope to see him back soon. He taught a PhD-seminar on this wonderful book in the summer of 2011. As John Marshall writes “On Historical Distance is a fascinating and very important book that should be read by all historians. (…) This book should provoke a lively debate among historians and should be assigned as essential reading for classes on historical methods and historiography.”
