At a time when the problems of the past have come to haunt many societies, the question of the social responsibility of the scientist and scholar, and of the historian in particular, has also once again become a topical one. In this volume seven internationally known historians consider this important question.


François Bédarida (1926-2001) was Directeur de recherche, C.N.R.S., Paris. He was a founder and first director of the Institut d'histoire du temps présent, from 1978 to 1990, and between 1990 and 2000, held the post of General Secretary of the International Committee of Historical Sciences (ICHS/CIHS).
