Historia is a series of interlocked observations on the nature of temporality, the human practice of writing its history, and the histories all things accumulate around themselves, as does the author even while discoursing on historia. A number of examples of history writing are provided which support the arguments of the text: five books of history `about America and the Americas,' and some examples from archeological reconstruction, from historical drumming in West Africa, and from the history of a painting by Albrecht Duerer. The book does not reach a conclusion - does not define historia - but views the term from many angles, and will refresh the reader's sense of what the historical is.
