This original and thought-provoking study looks at the context of postmodernist thought in general cultural terms as well as in relation to history.Postmodernism in Historytraces philosophical precursors of postmodernism and identifies the roots of current concerns. Beverley Southgate describes the core constituents of postmodernism and provides a lucid and profound analysis of the current state of the debate. His main concern is to counter 'pomophobia' and to assert a positive future for historical study in a postmodern world.

Postmodernism in Historyis a valuable guide to some of the most complex questions in historical theory for students and teachers alike.

Editorial Reviews

"Locating his considerations on postmodernism and history within a frame that goes back to the Greeks and forward into the future, Beverley Southgate's wonderfully lyrical text - which combines a depth of learning few carry so easily and a humanity and optimism few have expressed so pointedly - deserves to be read and pondered over by every student of history as it connects a contemporary discursive practice fearlessly' to life.."-Keith Jenkins, University College, Chichester
