9780415285575: Companion to Historiography (Routledge World Reference)

The Companion to Historiography is an original analysis of the moods and trends in historical writing throughout its phases of development and explores the assumptions and procedures that have formed the creation of historical perspectives. Contributed by a distinguished panel of academics, each essay conveys in direct, jargon-free language a genuinely international, wide-angled view of the ideas, traditions and institutions that lie behind the contemporary urgency of world history.

About the Author:

Michael Bentley is Professor of Modern History at the University of St Andrews. He has written extensively on Modern British History and teaches courses in historiography and historical theory.

From Library Journal:

This unique reference work provides a general guide to the study of the way history has been written, offering 45 substantial essays that examine the techniques, approaches, and biases that have influenced historians to the present. Editor Bentley (modern history, Univ. of St. Andrews, Scotland) divides the volume by period and examines the writing of history from both Western and Eastern perspectives. Each section begins with an introductory overview of the time period and then includes several essays on events or topics. The volume ends with a section on nonperiod issues and approaches to history. One problem with many of the essays is the targeting of an English-speaking market; if a history has not been translated into English, it is generally not included?a serious drawback for those interested in the construction of the histories of, say, Latin America and Asia. Still, this product of the British academic community contains a range of informative, though not particularly innovative, essays in a single volume. A valuable addition to academic reference collections.?Mark L. Grover, Brigham Young Univ., Provo, Utah
