By combining ideas drawn from marxism with some of the basic assumptions of the Annales school, Vovelle aims to present an original and influential approach to social and cultural history. This volume makes some of his most important work available in English. He analyzes a variety of methodological issues and substantive themes, examining aspects of popular culture, of popular resistance and revolution, as well as the history of death - the theme for which he is particularly well-known. He also develops an insightful critique of some of his contemporaries, including Aries and Braudel.
