Inhaltsangabe: This study examines questions about historians and their work; Why do we study history? How do we construct our knowledge of the past? What are the limitations of historical evidence? and What different kinds of history are being written today?
¿This is exactly the kind of book to recommend warmly to any student wanting a general introduction to the discipline of history. It is highly accessible and could as easily be handled by the general reader wanting to know what is happening to history today.'

¿Tosh provides an excellent introduction to methodology in history which will be read with advantage by historians at any stage of their development.'
