History and Narrative Reader by Geoffrey Roberts

Book Description

Drawing together seminal texts from philosophers and historians, including Hayden White, David Carr and Frederick Olafson, this volume presents the great debate over the narrative character of history from the 1960s onwards. The History and Narrative Reader combines theory with practice to offer a unique overview of this debate and illuminates the practical implications of these philosophical debates for the writing of history. The editor's introduction offers a succinct survey of the subject to support readings which explore the role of narrative in: * historical understanding * human action * linguistics and structure * the practice of history. An excellent book that any student of history and its practice will want on their bookshelf.

Stalin's General by Geoffrey Roberts Stalin's General, Paperback (May 2013)

Drawing on rich new sources from the recently-opened Soviet archives, Geoffrey Roberts has fashioned the definitive, first full-scale biography of this seminal 20th century figure.

Molotov by Geoffrey Roberts Molotov, Hardback (March 2012)

The orthodox view of Vyacheslav Molotov is that he was no more than Stalin's faithful servant; a dogmatic conservative communist of little or no imagination. Molotov was, indeed, Stalin's right-hand man while from the 1920s the two men presided over a brutal, authoritarian communist system that led to the deaths of millions of people.

Stalin's Wars by Geoffrey Roberts Stalin's Wars, Paperback (August 2008)

Features Stalin's leadership from the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939 to his death in 1953. This book challenges a long list of standard perceptions of Stalin: his qualities as a leader; his relationships with his own generals and with other great world leaders; his foreign policy; and his role in instigating the Cold War.
