Not just Marxists

Marxist historians “may overcompensate for the radicality of their ideology by being more orthodox in their methodologies and research practices than the ordinary bourgeois historian. Hence they may try to furnish two footnotes for every one of the bourgeois adversary’s or indulge a ‘my footnote is bigger than yours’ mentality”.

Dominick LaCapra, Rethinking Intellectual History: Texts, Contexts, Language, Ithaca: Cornell University Press, 1983, p. 328.
