This original and thought-provoking study looks at the context of postmodernist thought in general cultural terms as well as in relation to history. Postmodernism in History traces philosophical precursors of postmodernism and identifies the roots of current concerns. Beverley Southgate describes the core constituents of postmodernism and provides a lucid and profound analysis of the current state of the debate. His main concern is to counter 'pomophobia' and to assert a positive future for historical study in a postmodern world.

Postmodernism in History is a valuable guide to some of the most complex questions in historical theory for students and teachers alike.

Review:

'A stimulating, enjoyable and substantial book.' - History Today


'This book is written in a jaunty ... chatty style as the author engages with a wide range of authors and cites them liberally ... The book is [also] packaged in a user-friendly way.' - History


'This is an intriguing and fruitful book, which should be read not least by those who will be put off by the title ... [Southgate] provides a masterly survey ... [and] proves a sound and entertaining guide.' - Literature and History
