Talk by Joel Hurstfield, Lecturer in Modern History at University College, London
'We were really under the impression that Froude had been by this time so completely discredited that no one, with an eye to his own reputation, would mention Froude and history in the same breath.' This comment was thrown up in the course of a lengthy and varied controversy between the Times of India and the Bombay Examiner in 1918. The controversy provides the starting-point for Mr. Hurstfield's re-examination of Froude's qualities as a historian of the Tudor age.
