  • Post-colonialism; diistortion of history?

    If I may add, I"m also drawing on the literary theory of post-colonialism, with books like <em>Heart of Darkness</em> and <em>The Quiet American</em> (and post-colonialist critiques of such) both featuring in my thoughts. The strengths and weaknesses of oral history are a debate in themselves, but <strong>oral history can"t hope to match up to a written tradition that has a strong epistemological foundation</strong>. Benedict Arnold is considered the ultimate traitor, he is the icon of American traitors, and his name is synonymous with the word traitor.
