George examines the dilemmas of trying to present "real history" to the general public. Using dramatizations, travelogues, and a well-honed sense of irony, George persuades us to question fundamental issues such as historical significance, to critically review attempts to recapture the past in buildings and books, and to reflect on the meaning and value of history.
