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.
