About the book:

Why do we study history? How do we construct our knowledge of the past? How objective can it be? What are its limitations? Can we apply to it the methodology of social science? What different kinds of history are being written today? Answering these key questions, John Tosh's new edition preserves the shape of the original but extends the existing chapters with new much material on e.g. discourse, the history of mentalities and historical explanation; and gender has become an important recurring motif throughout.
