Lessons Unlearned: HNN Features Editor Robin Lindley InterviewedHistorians in the News
We are introducing our new collection, Lessons Unlearned, with an interview with Robin Lindley, a Seattle-based writer and attorney, and the features editor of the History News Network.
I was troubled by unfairness, violence, suffering. Perhaps I shared a hope of many who love history that, in learning about the mistakes of the past, we can shape a better world, a more just, peaceful and humane world. I sense that learned historians believe knowledge of the past can provide valuable lessons for the future, but also understand the reality that humans often ignore lessons of the past. —Robin Lindley
