Summary
"This Reader brings together some of the key writings of the major historians of the last half-century. They illuminate the political, social and personal assumptions which have governed and sustained historical practice and theory. The book also brings into focus the key historiographic trends since World War Two." "This reader provides the core reading for all History and Theory courses and will promote further debate across cognate disciplines including philosophy and literature."--BOOK JACKET
