Postmodern History Reader by Keith Jenkins

Book Description

The Postmodern History Reader is the most comprehensive collection of influential texts on historiography and postmodernism yet compiled. Keith Jenkins expertly selects from the books and journal articles across the whole historiographical range that have been key to the transforming debates. This unique reader is a clear introduction to the impact of postmodernism on historical debate, allowing easy access to one of the more stimulating and exciting areas of current history. It provides: * extracts from influential historians, such as Barthes, Joyce, White, Foucault and Baudrillard * individual introductions to each carefully defined debate * many thoroughly up-to-date as well as 'classic' pieces * texts from a range of subdisciplines in history and theory * arguments both for and against postmodernism * advice on further reading * access to key writings which are not normally readily available. Presented in a format that is both easy to use and challenging, The Postmodern History Reader will serve as an invaluable course text and reference tool for students and postgraduates.
