Beschreibung

Cloth, 8vo, viii, 239 pp. Approximately 1,350 entries. Elton provides a highly readable survey of books and articles written about any aspect of British history from 1485 to 1985 that were published in the 25 years after the second world war. Arranged as a series of essays covering the works on particular periods or topics, including for example the history of ideas, with a brief bibliographic reference for each work provided as a footnote - there are 1,351- and the comment in the text summarizing or evaluating the work in a sentence or less. The result is a more compact and much more interesting book than the typical selective annotated bibliography, which is what, nevertheless, this work amounts to. Author and subject indexes are provided. Very Good in price-clipped and slightly torn dustwrapper. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-14062

Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

The Twenty-five year period following the Second World War saw an enormous expansion of activity in the writing of the history of modern Britain, and with that expansion a major transformation of the state of knowledge in many parts of the area. First published in 1970, this Revivals reissue, which includes an extensive coverage of books and a reasonable selection of articles, endeavours both to survey the work done and to reduce it to some comprehensible order. It indicates achievements and probable lines of development, and collects the materials that have grown around the main controversies. Omitted are local history (in the main) and the history of empire and commonwealth, except where the latter really arises out of the affairs of the mother country. There are special sections on social history, the history of ideas, Scotland and Ireland.
