This Reader brings together the key writings of the major historians of the last century. They illuminate the political, social and personal assumptions which have governed and sustained historical practice and theory. The book also brings into focus the key historiographic trends since World War Two. Key themes which are highlighted include:
 
- The role of sources
- The nation
- Marxism
- Radicalism
- Structural history
- Gender
- Race
- Statistics and economics
 
Ranging widely from the earlier traditions and schools to the wake of postmodernism, authors represented include Braudel, Zeldin, Elton Carr, Hobsbawm, Joyce and Evans.
 
This Reader provides the core reading for all History and Theory courses and will promote further debate across cognate disciplines including philosophy and literature.
