about

This book examines the rapid development of social history over the past 100 years, exploring the links between historical method, social theory and the changing nature of what interests us about the past. Providing a route map for general readers and students alike, the book charts diverse territories, from the rise of social history from poor relation to economic history and the emergence of Annales and Marxist perspectives to the recent challenges presented by post-structuralism and cultural history.
