This chapter shows how and why contemporary history became the exclusive realm of party politics. In doing so, it discusses two forms that partisan historiography embraced: the national allegory and Marxist historiography. The first was extremely powerful and popular. The second was an innovative fringe movement. Both, however, were politically conditioned and thus permitted a rather narrow range of historical interpretation.

Keywords:   contemporary history, party politics, partisan historiography, Marxist historiography, national allegory
