Historians on History by John Tosh

Book Description

A follow-up to the bestselling The Pursuit of History, this Reader brings together the reflections of a number of major historians on the nature and purpose of their craft. They illuminate the different governing assumptions - political, social, personal - that have sustained these leading practitioners in their studies, and show how different influences and methodologies have impacted on them. In so doing, the book not only gives an insight into the great variety of aspirations and convictions that animate History as a discipline, but also brings into focus the key historiographic trends of the English-speaking world since World War II. Key themes which are highlighted include: The nation Marxism People's history Structural history Gender Race Quantitative history Ranging widely from the earlier traditions and schools to the wake of postmodernism, authors represented include Braudel, Carr, Elton, Himmelfarb, Hobsbawm, Scott and Zeldin. This Reader provides the core reading for all History and Theory courses.

Why History Matters by John Tosh Why History Matters, Paperback (April 2008)

In this introduction to the practical application of History, John Tosh persuasively argues we are in danger of missing history's principal contribution. Using topical examples from the Iraq War to AIDS to globalization, this text shows how history can provide the basis for an informed and critical understanding of our society.

Man's Place by John Tosh Man's Place, Paperback (March 2007)

Domesticity is generally treated as an aspect of women's history. This study of the 19th-century middle class shows how profoundly men's lives were conditioned by the Victorian ideal and how they negotiated its many contradictions. It looks at the experience of boyhood, married life, sex, and fatherhood in the early decades of the 19th-century.
