Good for intro to historiography for undergrads
Arnold's aptly titled work would be useful for an introductory undergraduate class, especially one that is aimed at giving students an overview of historiography and some of the discussions going on in the field up to the '80s (for after that it gets too "complicated" for Arnold to deal with). As a text for a grad class it is inadequate and simplistic. For people not in school, this would be also be useful. His writing is clear, concise, and immensely readable, something that cannot be said for other academics writing overviews.
