Summary
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, Baudrillard and Ankersmit; individual contributions 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; access to key writings that are not normally readily available; advice on further reading
