Description - Postmodernism and History by W. Thompson
Willie Thompson offers a clear, jargon free introduction to postmodernist theory and its significant impact on the study of history. Thompson, however, presents key ideas in a straightforward way, making these debates relevant to students' own work. Themes explored include the status of historical evidence, problems of historical representation, relativism in judgements of fact and value, and the validity of long range historical explanation.
