Natural Experiments of History - New Books in History Jared Diamond
What does Jared Diamond think of historians? They are unloved and don't get paid much for good reason, because they produce work of little value. They are too specialised and not good enough at sums.
This emerges in this podcast where he talks about it. To an historian.
Incidentally they also talk about a history book that Diamond has just edited. That sounds quite interesting too.
