9780393351170: Writing History in the Global Era

Leading historian Lynn Hunt rethinks why history matters in today’s global world and how it should be written.

Globalization is emerging as a major economic, cultural, and political force. In Writing History in the Global Era, historian Lynn Hunt examines whether globalization can reinvigorate the telling of history. She looks toward scholars from the East and West collaborating in new ways as they share their ideas. She proposes a sweeping reevaluation of individuals’ active role and their place in society as the keys to understanding the way people and ideas interact. Hunt also reveals how surprising new perspectives on society and the self offer promising new ways of thinking about the meaning and purpose of history in our time.

About the Author:

Lynn Hunt is Distinguished Research Professor at UCLA, former president of the American Historical Association, and author of numerous works, including Inventing Human Rights and Telling the Truth about History. She lives in Los Angeles.

Review:

“Hunt has...the most reliable eye for new trends in the American historical profession, and what she considers important always amounts to more than the sum of her current enthusiasms...she has a preternatural sense of the new new thing being touted by historians to study old things.”
- Samuel Moyn, The Nation

“No one has a better nose for historical trends than Lynn Hunt. Her short, sharp book offers an inspiring declaration of interdependence for historians―to understand the global present collaboratively, using all our tools to unscramble the entangled past.”
- David Armitage, author of Foundations of Modern International Thought

“With characteristic concision and lucidity, Lynn Hunt takes on the methodological dilemmas facing all historians today...A thought-provoking snapshot of where historians stand now and where they might be headed. Lively and engaging, this book will help both budding and seasoned historians understand the current state of their discipline.”
- Sarah Maza, author of The Myth of the French Bourgeoisie

Book Description WW Norton Co, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. George Orwell wrote that history is written by the winners . Even if that seems a bit too cut-and-dried, we can say that history is always written from a viewpoint but that viewpoints change, sometimes radically. The history of workers, women and minorities challenged the once unquestioned dominance of the tales of great leaders and military victories. Then cultural studies brought fresh perspectives but those too have run their course. With globalisation emerging as a major economic, cultural and political force, Lynn Hunt examines whether it can reinvigorate the telling of history. In tandem, she proposes a sweeping re-evaluation of individuals agency and their place in society as the keys to understanding the way people and ideas interact. Writing History in the Global Era is bound to shake up the discipline and break new ground for historical studies. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780393351170
