From the Back Cover:

Widely acclaimed for its accessibility and engaging approach to the subject, the fourth edition of The Methods and Skills of History combines theory with hands-on practice in its comprehensive introduction to historical research and writing. The new edition preserves many of the features that users praised from previous editions, along with numerous updates in content, style, and organization. Revisions include an additional chapter on the treatment of historical writing, with an emphasis on history as storytelling. There is a more in-depth discussion of electronic research, including the pros and cons of online research and accessibility to and assessment of current online resources. A new section features the use of photos as evidence and expanded discussions of historical causality and gender-based history. As before, both old and new exercises draw on a wide variety of historical texts. This new edition of The Methods and Skills of History will continue to be an invaluable resource for students and instructors alike.
