About this item

Words in Time examines key historical concepts – power, revolution, public opinion, terrorism, generation, violence, popular culture, identity, the modern state – by analysing their formation and use in history and the social sciences. Sometimes these words have lost their original meanings, but they continue in our discourse and so continue to problematise our thinking. Sometimes they are more apt to close than to open new horizons. Francesco Benigno’s careful scrutiny of their origins and development is accompanied by a critique of their use, and by an examination of their potential usefulness today leading to a plea for a new, more conscious, historical approach to the social world.
