About this title

Synopsis:

Bringing together practical methods from both history and composition, Writing History provides students with a wealth of tips and advice on the ways professional historians write. A simple, concise manual, it covers all aspects of writing about history, including finding topics and researching them, interpreting source materials, drawing inferences from sources, and constructing arguments. Using numerous examples from the work of cultural, political, and social historians, it deals with the history of every continent and serves as an ideal supplement to all history courses where writing is required. The volume is further enhanced by three closing chapters that discuss writing effective sentences, using precise wording, and revising. It also features a glossary of usage focusing on the special needs of history writers.
Addressing the problems that all historians face when writing, Writing History is a perfect guide for graduate and undergraduate history students in need of writing advice.
