About The Author
The Center for the Study of Myth
Another of Wood's favorite historical pursuits is the identification of myths in history, an avocation which, after the publication of Nullification's four volumes, he hopes to institutionalize in what he plans to call the Center for the Study of Myth. Historical myths abound in every age, culture and civilization, and Wood believes that understanding the formulation and perpetuation of myths in history is critical to interpreting the events of the present as well as the past.
