Overview

In this engaging intellectual autobiography, Georges Duby looks back on a career that has led him to be called one of the most distinguished historians in the Western world. Since its beginning in the 1940s, Duby's career has been rich and varied, encompassing economic history, social history, the history of mentalites, art history, microhistory, urban history, the history of women and sexuality, and, most recently, the Church's influence on feudal society. In retracing this singular career path, Duby candidly remembers his life's most formative influences, including the legendary historians Marc Bloch and Lucien Febvre, the Annales School so closely associated with them, and the College de France. Duby also offers insights about the proper methods of gathering and using archival data and on constructing penetrating interpretations of the documents. Indeed, his discussion of how he chose his subjects, collected his materials, developed the arguments, erected the scaffolding, and constructed his theses offers the best introduction to the craft available to aspiring historians.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
French historian, medievalist and popular TV personality Duby is an adherent of the Annales school of historiography, which emphasizes the material conditions of life over the deeds of politicians and warriors. He devotes nearly half of these dry, modest memoirs to an exhaustive account of how he researched and wrote his 1951 dissertation on the French judicial system of the 11th century. Elsewhere he discusses television as a communication tool for historians; his travels in Spain, Italy, North Africa and Mexico; and 12th-century knight William the Marshal, regent of England. While concentrating on his working methods, discoveries and preoccupations, Duby does touch briefly on such topics as the role of the artist in medieval society, family structure and the exchange economy in the Middle Ages and the dynamics of chivalry. Nov.
Booknews
A memoir of one of the most celebrated historians in France, and a history of the French historical school since the 1940s. Duby, a member of the Academie francaise, for many years held the distinguished chair in medieval history at the College de France. His previous works have encompassed the medieval scene from peasants to knights, agricultural tools to mental attitudes, castles to cathedrals. He is also a painter whose coffee-table books reproducing the images of medieval artists were meant to entice a modern public to consider the society that created them. Annotation c.
