About this title

Synopsis:

Why History is an introduction to the issue of history and ethics. Designed to provoke discussion, the book asks whether a good knowledge and understanding of the past is a good thing to have and if so, why. In the context of postmodern times, Why History suggests that the goal of 'learning lessons from the past' is actually learning lessons from stories written by historians and others. If the past as history has no foundation, can anything ethical be gained from history?
Why History presents liberating challenges to history and ethics, proposing that we have reached an emancipatory moment which is well beyond the 'end of history'.

About the Author:

Keith Jenkins is Reader in History at the Chichester Institute of Higher Education. He is the author of Rethinking History (1991) and On "What is History?" (1995) and the editor of The Postmodern History Reader (1997), all published by Routledge.
