Revisionist Jewish History

Start with “Doros Harishonim” by Rabbi Yitzchak Isaac Halevi. Less revisionist than Graetz, etc. whom he wrote to debate, but also often disagreeing with the Rishonim, because, as he says, לא הייתה מעין מלאכתן בכך. Which is why the Chaon Ish didn’t like his work much (I hope to discuss this further later on).
