Transforming The Past by Writing History

History transforms the past, instead of merely explaining it. When a historian writes a work of history, he develops a new view of the past. The most honest account of history is a half breed between what really happened, and what events and situations of the past the historian has considered and what events and situations he has ignored. There are as many versions of the past as there are works of history.
