    A good antidote to Ranke-an dicta comes in two parts: first Novick, That
    Noble Dream; then Jenkins, Why History? There is always an allegation from
    historians that everyone else is triumphalist, and in my experience working
    with medical history the phenomenon Willard outlines exists, but it usually
    turns out to be a matter of degree, as we see in the arguments about
    American exceptionalism among historians.
