The Whig Interpretation of History by Herbert Butterfield

This book is a critical examination of the Whig interpretation of history, which tends to present past events and people in a way that validates the present. The author argues that this approach oversimplifies complex historical events and imposes modern values onto the past, thereby distorting our understanding of history. He emphasizes the importance of studying history in its own context, without projecting contemporary beliefs and values onto it.
