About this item

Starting from the premise that historical theory and historiography are fascinating and exciting topics to study, Claus and Marriott guide the student through the various historical theories and approaches in a balanced, comprehensive and engaging way.

Key features -

    • Written in a clear and witty way.
    • Presents a balanced view of the subject, rather than the polemical view of one historian.
    • Comprehensive - covers the whole range of topics taught on historiography and historical theory courses in suitable depth.
    • Full of examples from different historical approaches - from social, cultural and political history to gender, economic and world history
    • Covers a wide chronological breadth of examples from the ancient and medieval worlds to the twentieth century.
    • Shows how students can engage with the theories covered in each chapter and apply them to their own studies via the 'In Practice' feature at the end of each chapter.

This second edition is fully updated and includes many more examples from around the world, including the USA, as well as expanded sections on political, social and cultural history and new sections on popular histories, environmental histories and archaeology and history. The book also includes more material on digital archives and a new companion website with lots of instructor resources, discussion documents and annotated online resources. Packed with intriguing anecdotes from all periods of history and supported by primary extracts from original historical writings, History: An Introduction to Theory, Method and Practice is the student-friendly text which demystifies the subject with clarity and verve.
