9780199923007: From Herodotus to H-Net: The Story of Historiography

From Herodotus to H-Net: The Story of Historiography offers a concise yet comprehensive and up-to-date account of the many ways in which history has been studied and recounted, from the ancient world to the new universe of the Internet. It shows how the same issues that historians debate today were already recognized in past centuries, and how the efforts of historians in the past remain relevant today. Balanced and fair-minded, the book covers the development of modern academic scholarship, but also helps students appreciate the contributions of popular historians and public history.

About the Author:


Jeremy D. Popkin is the William T. Bryan Chair of History at the University of Kentucky.

Review:


"From Herodotus to H-Net is a concise and inclusive primer on the history of historiography from ancient times to the present. It will prove invaluable to students of history at any level. It both recounts the past and points to the future of the study of human experience across the ages."--Carol Gluck, Columbia University


"This is a superb book: thoughtful, clearly written, remarkably brief, and absolutely essential for any student taking a historiography course."--Robert A. Rosenstone, California Institute of Technology


"Popkin's voice is clear, resolute, and compelling, taking us on a journey through historical trends from the vantage of the storyteller. Like the best writing in history, this text helps the reader to invest in each trend and development through clear connections made by the author."--Kyle Livie, San Francisco State University


"The book is impressively global in its reach, examining the development of historiography in Asia, Latin America, and the Islamic World in addition to the United States and Europe. It also provides a thorough overview of the rapidly changing nature of contemporary historical practice and an introduction to graduate school and academic and public history careers. Highly recommended."--Nicola Foote, Florida Gulf Coast University


"From Herodotus to H-Net will likely become a standard text in historical methods classes."--Jared Poley, Georgia State University


"From Herodotus to H-Net ia a wonderful introduction to the study of historiography. Characterized by scholarly command of the most relevant literature, thorough and clear discussion of those sources, and an impassioned endorsement of the contributions of the field of history, From Herodotus to H-Net is resoundingly successful in achieving Popkin's stated aims."--Jonas Kauffeldt, University of North Georgia
