New Perspectives on Historical Writing / Edition 2 available in Paperback
'Peter Burke has gathered together some of the most distinguished of the 'new'historians in a number of different fields-Scott, Darnton, Tuck, Levi and Porter-and asked them to reflect on their practice, and more widely of the practices of the particular historical guild to which they belong. The result is a book which is quite unlike anything else now available in English. It will surely become required reading for anyone interested in the development of historical writing the twentieth century.' --Anthony Pagden, 'Kings' College, Cambridge'
