What History Tells presents an impressive collection of critical papers from the September 2001 conference “An Historian’s Legacy: George L. Mosse and Recent Research on Fascism, Society, and Culture.” This book examines his historiographical legacy first within the context of his own life and the internal development of his work, and secondly by tracing the many ways in which Mosse influenced the subsequent study of contemporary history, European cultural history and modern Jewish history.

The contributors are Steven E. Aschheim, David Sabean, Johann Sommerville, Emilio Gentile, Roger Griffin, Saul Friedländer, Jay Winter, Rudy Koshar, Robert Nye, Janna Bourke, Shulamit Volkov, and
Emmanuel Sivan.
