History in Crisis? Recent Directions in Historiography Summary


History in Crisis? Recent Directions in Historiography by Norman J. Wilson

History in Crisis? provides students with an in-depth look at the practices, methods, and theoretical assumptions Western historians employ in their quest to decipher and interpret events of the past. Students are exposed to the inner workings of the historical world, allowing them to discover and understand the approaches historians utilize to conduct research, and to fully comprehend what the pursuit of historical truth actually entails. By offering an introduction to historical research, a brief survey of the formal philosophy of history, and investigations of the concerns and questions facing today's historians, Norman J. Wilson provides students with the skills and tools necessary to understand the study of history, analyze historical problems, and most importantly, become active participants in the currently expanding historical conversation.
