The Varieties of History: From Voltaire to the Present
2ndPublisher: Vintage BooksFormat: Paperback
This is a book by historians about history, personal reflections on an ancient but ever varying discipline. As the present work will show, modern historians have written in a variety of genres, but the multiplicity of style cannot obscure the two basic tendencies which have affected all modern historians: the transformation of history into an academic discipline and society's growing demand for history.
