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.'
British Book News

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

¿...admirably up-to-date, well-researched and written with the kind of brio which might alone suggest that history is exciting....The judgements are individual and sometimes controversial but there is no better tour d'horizon on the market.'
Journal of African History

'Tosh writes clearly and pungently...a very satisfactory as well as stimulating vade-mecum for all who work at history.'
Times Higher Education Supplement

· What are the limitations of historical evidence?
· What different kinds of history are being written today?
