Description - In Defence of History by Richard J. Evans

New edition with a major new afterword 'A rare intellectual achievement, speaking lucidly to both historians and the general reader.' Bernard Crick, Independent Under the onslaught of postmodernist theory, the profession of history is in crisis, its assumptions derided and its methods rejected as outmoded. Richard J. Evans mounts a brilliant and compellingly effective defence of the historian's capacity to reach genuine insights about past events. In Defence of History has already become a standard text in the teaching of history. In this new edition, Evans replies to his critics - conservative and postmodernist - in a measured, forceful afterword.
