Editorial Reviews

Takes historiography as a starting point to explore adjacent fields of legal, political, and social thought and to confront some of the larger questions of the modern human sciences. Considers early modern history from such perspectives as humanism, Johann Sleidan and the origins of history as a profession, and history and the encyclopedia. Topics of modern history include legal tradition and the French historical school, and the very old Marx. Among the legal aspects examined are civil science in the Renaissance, and men of law and the French Revolution. The 19 essays are reproduced from original publications 1971-95. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
