Historiography is one of the most important and basic areas of study for all historians. Yet in such a broad field, how does the student find their way through it? In The Modern Historiography Reader, Adam Budd guides the reader through developments in history writing since the eighteenth century. Starting with Enlightened history and moving through subjects like myth in history, biography and the impact of scientific principles on history, he then goes on to look at some of the most important developments in twentieth-century historiography such as social history, gender history, race and postmodernism. The book includes an introduction which explains what historiography is, looks at how a historian’s perspective and sources determine the kinds of questions they ask, and discusses how major ideological developments have shaped historical writing over the last three hundred years. Each section has an introduction which familiarises the reader with the individual topics and articles and puts them in their wider context. With a glossary of technical terms and selected further reading lists in each section, The Modern Historiography Reader is the perfect introduction to historiography, including both the canon of ideas since the eighteenth century and the work that formed and discussed those ideas.
