when history is practiced

By “history” here I’m referring to the engagement of research and investigation first hand and personally with the subject to be analyzed and evaluated. Walt Harrington seems to practice history pretty well, based on this essay about President George W. Bush, written a couple of years after the end of his presidency. He personally has engaged with the subject and so writes with real knowledge and understanding. It’s remarkably refreshing in contrast with so much that gets posted these days.
