Quarterly Essay 23
- The History Question: Who Owns the Past
- By: Inga Clendinnen
- Narrated by: Inga Clendinnen
- Length: 2 hrs and 50 mins
In the third Quarterly Essay for 2006, Inga Clendinnen looks past the skirmishes and pitched battles of the history wars and asks what's at stake - what kind of history do we want and need?

For Clendinnen, historians cannot be the midwives of national identity and also be true to their profession: History cannot do the work of myth.
