Historical evidence and argument by David P Henige( )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Historians know about the past because they examine the evidence. But what exactly is "evidence," and how do historians know what it means? What about when scholars disagree over the interpretation, or even the authenticity, of a piece of evidence? Such questions have become more important than ever with the emergence of new techniques, new evidence, and increasingly passionate debates over historical politics." "Historian David Henige tackles these and other issues of historical reliability head-on in his skeptical, unsparing, and acerbically witty Historical Evidence and Argument. "Systematic doubt" is his watchword, and he practices what he preaches through a variety of insightful assessments of historical controversies - for example, over the dating of artifacts, or the textual analysis of translated documents. Doubt, Henige contends, forces us to recognize the limits of our knowledge, but is also a positive force that stimulates new scholarship to counter it."--Jacket
Numbers from nowhere : the American Indian contact population debate by David P Henige( )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the past forty years an entirely new paradigm has developed regarding the contact population of the New World. Proponents of this new theory argue that the American Indian population in 1492 was ten, even twenty, times greater than previous estimates. In Numbers from Nowhere David Henige argues that the data on which these high counts are based are meager and often demonstrably wrong." "Interpreting the archaeological as well as the historical evidence, Henige concludes that the task of assigning meaningful numbers for the American Indian contact population is an impossible one."--Jacket
