Historiography - a term used
to identify all historical
literature written about a
specific topic.
Historiography includes all
historical literature written
over a span of time beginning
with the actual designated
historical event  in question to
the present. Each generation of
time from the historical event
to the present produces and
offers its unique interpretation
of the historical event
suggesting that history is not
an absolute science but a
social science concerned with
relative social science facts.  
Each generation, therefore,
produces its own zeitgeist
which refracts and distorts the
human condition.
