Summary
"Deconstructive readings of history and sources have changed the entire discipline of history. And in this second edition of Deconstructing History, Alun Munslow examines history in what he argues is a postmodern age. He provides an introduction to the debates and issues of postmodernist history. He also surveys the latest research into the relationship between the past, history and historical practice, as well as forwarding his own challenging theories." "Including a fully updated glossary and bibliography, Munslow maps the philosophical field, outlines the controversies involved and assesses the merits of the by now familiar deconstructionist position."--BOOK JACKET
