9780415202671: Modern Historiography: An Introduction

Modern Historiography is the essential introduction to the history of historical writing. It explains the broad philosophical background to the different historians and historical schools of the modern era, from James Boswell and Thomas Carlyle through to Lucien Febure and Eric Hobsbawm and surveys:

  • the Enlightenment and Counter Enlightenment
  • Romanticism
  • the voice of Science and the process of secularization within Western intellectual thought
  • the influence of, and broadening contact with, the New World
  • the Annales school in France
  • Postmodernism.

Modern Historiography provides a clear and concise account of this modern period of historical writing.

About the Author:

Michael Bentley is Professor of Modern History at the University of St. Andrews. He is the editor of the Companion to Historiography (1996).

Review:

What [Bentley] accomplishes in a mere 160 pages is astonishing: a lucid, enlightening, often witty, convincing, and pithy survey of the field since the Enlightenment. This is an important book whose use will benefit a great majority of those, at every level, involved in investigating historical materials.
