REUTERS: Professor Henry Reynolds says that more than a million of his fellow Australian historians have now been killed as a result of the so-called "History Wars".
"There was a time when historians roamed the plains like sheep, but Keith Windschuttle and John Howard have decimated our stocks, sometimes raping historians, sometimes burning them, leaving little if any trace to be found," Professor Reynolds said.
"I am now among the last of my kind. When I walk down the street these days, unless you bump into Phillip Adams, you might never see another person wearing a skivvy or stroking their beard thoughtfully."
Professor Reynolds' article "The Genocide of Australian Historians," is soon to be published in the internationally respected journal, The Lancet. The Lancet is the world's most popular journal, being read by more than 3 billion people.
