Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Klappentext:

Of previous editions:

History

 

?Can easily be handled by the general reader wanting to know what is happening to history today.?

British Book News

 

This famous study examines important 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? What different kinds of history are being written today?

The subjects covered are difficult and sometimes controversial but John Tosh has proved himself an admirable guide in this celebrated work. His cool eye and lively pen make the issues clear and involving; and he makes the reader vividly aware of just how far our historical knowledge is conditioned by the character of the sources and by the methods of the historians who work on them.

 

In this 4th edition the main text is made even more accessible through a number of  new features:

 

  • Chapter opening summaries
  • Marginal glosses for difficult terms and concepts
  • Boxed sections at the end of each chapter dedicated to key events and people
  • Illustrative material throughout the text
  • Suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter
  • Section headings to facilitate navigation around the book

 

 

 

John Tosh is Professor of History at Roehampton University.

Seán Lang is Research Fellow in History at Anglia Polytechnic University.
