Writing History 2ed provides students and teachers with a comprehensive overview of the emergence and development of history as a discipline and of the major theoretical developments that have informed historical writing. Instead of focusing on theory, the book uses key historical texts to explain key concepts and demonstrate the ways they have informed practical work.

This new edition is fully revised, including new chapters on history and the social sciences, history and anthropology and the Annales and history. It is an invaluable introduction to the central debates that have shaped History.
