  1. Read the text and find the answers to the following questions:

· What is meant by “doing” history?

· What is understood by historical forces and their role?

· What is the role of the geographical factor in history?

· Who thought that history is the product of conflict?

· Who objected to understanding history as future determined by the past?

When doing history, it helps to keep in mind that there are many different ways of determining how history happens. One of the key things to remember is that historians disagree very much over why almost any event happened. In the search for how things happen, we get ideas about how to understand our present world's events and what to do about them, if anything.

The following list of selected historians can give you some ideas of how the great historians "did" history. Also, keep in mind that this list is in no way complete or exclusive of other historians.


sap – подрывать, ослаблять

pagan – языческий

firestorm – огненная буря; вспышка гнева

undermine – подрывать, расшатывать

hostile – враждебный, недружественный
