This is a side of scholarship you rarely hear about, the study of those who are studying the histories and putting them together. I find a book like this to be invaluable to any level of historical curiosity because it paints a completely new understanding of how our knowledge of history is informed. What we know, what we think we know, and how we got to either of those types of conclusions is now completely under the microscope for us. From this we get new answers, and thusly, new questions. It makes the study of history that much richer, especially for those of us who don't have much insight into the world of the historian. This book is probably a bit much for the generally curious, but for the most scholarly-oriented, this one's a winner.

the late David Case's (Frederick Davidson) snooty English lisp is pitch perfect for this historiography. You will a bit about medieval history but only tangentially. This is a series of biographies of great medievalists from Maitland to the 1970s. Combine it with Civilization of the Middle Ages and you are all set.
