Historical research isn't just about reading history books. It's about reading source material.
Nobody would take me seriously as a researcher if all I did was to read secondary literature.

What a genuinely stupid point to make.

European historians don't just copy what "the Yankees" write. They just come to the same conclusions based on the source material.
Blah Blah, you read what was expected of you, you never actually looked for the truth, you looked for what everyone thinks is the truth, most professionals are hacks.
Nobody "expects" me to read anything specific. Research is a pretty independent, autonomous process.

You clearly have no idea how all this works.
slap together some thesis type thing, alter it enoguh to look original and turn it in...am i wrong?
