Overview

In Fortunes of History Donald R. Kelley offers an authoritative examination of historical writing during the"long nineteenth century"—the years from the French Revolution to those just after the First World War. He provides a comprehensive analysis of the theories and practices of British, French, German, Italian, and American schools of historical thought, their principal figures, and their distinctive methods and self-understandings. Kelley treats the modern traditions of European world and national historiography from the Enlightenment to the"new histories" of the twentieth century, attending not only to major authors and schools but also to methods, scholarship, criticisms, controversies, ideological questions, and relations to other disciplines.

Author Biography: Donald R. Kelley is James Westfall Thompson Professor of History at Rutgers University and executive editor of the Journal of the History of Ideas.
