The New Press’s four&-volume Postwar French Thought Series charts the intellectual transformations that took place in post–World War II France. Histories, the first volume in the Series, focuses on the way French thinkers reshaped the way we see and understand our past. The volume sets the work of historians associated with the Annales school into the wider context of postwar French historiography, structuralism, quantitative methods, and interdisciplinary studies. It contains selections from major foundational texts (Braudel, Labrousse, Duby, Chartier, and Wachtel) as well as works by Foucault, Lévi-Strauss, Bourdieu, and Veyne, many of them translated here for the first time.

Jacques Revel is a professor of history at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales in Paris. He is the author (with Arlette Farge) of Vanishing Children of Paris.
Lynn Hunt is the Annenberg Professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania. She is the author of The Family Romance in the French Revolution and editor of The New Cultural History and the Invention of Pornography.
These 64 seminal essays by nearly as many authors span the past half-century and offer a multivoiced account of the changing methodologies, assumptions, and controversies in French historiography. The interests of these historians have been predominantly problem-centered economic and social history, and most of them have been associated with the journal Annales. In this work, editors Revel, who is writing a book about Annales, and Hunt (The Family Romance of the French Revolution, LJ 4/1/92) cover structuralism, the rise of quantitative history, and controversies concerning the French Revolution, among other topics. Graduate students and specialists will find this collection useful. Future volumes in the series will concern philosophy, literary criticism, and classical antiquity in recent French thought.
