This is the first guide to the sources, techniques and concepts needed for effective historical research studies.
Each chapter introduces a different research method. These range from the well established, such as archival research, to the less widely known, such as Geographical Information Systems, and recent trends, such as textual analysis and material culture studies. The contributors explain how each method can be applied to different historical subjects and periods.
Case studies range from life stories written and spoken by migrants and soldiers to the "second wave" of women's history, including examples from Eastern Europe.
The book covers 13 different methods spanning all periods, from the medieval to the modern.
