"An excellent introduction to methodology in history which will be read with advantage by historians at any stage of their development."
"Can easily be handled by the general reader wanting to know what is happening to history today."
"British Book News"
This famous study examines important questions about historians and their work - Why do we study history? How do we construct our knowledge of the past? What are the limitations of historical evidence? What different kinds of history are being written today?
The subjects covered are difficult and sometimes controversial but John Tosh has proved himself an admirable guide in this celebrated work. His cool eye and lively pen make the issues clear and involving; and he makes the reader vividly aware of just how far our historical knowledge is conditioned by the character of the sources and by the methods of the historians who work on them.
In this 4th edition the main text is made even more accessible through a number of new features:
John Tosh is Professor of History at Roehampton University.
Sean Lang is Research Fellow in History at Anglia Polytechnic University.
"The" essential introduction to the practice of history - revised with new features to ensure it is even more popular with students.
