Revealing the human dimension of the past is the purpose of microhistory--the intense study of a particular individual, community, or event. Microstoria evolved primarily in Italy during the late 1970s and 1980s among a group of historians associated with the journal Quaderni storici. This collection contains eight of the most stimulating examples of microhistory from Quaderni storici, translated by Eren Branch. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
