Edited by Stuart Macintyre, Juan Maiguashca, Attila Pok

Part of the Oxford History of Historical Writing series


Volume 4 of The Oxford History of Historical Writing offers essays by leading scholars on the writing of history globally from 1800 to 1945.

Divided into four parts, it first covers the rise, consolidation, and crisis of European historical thought, and the professionalization and institutionalization of history.

The chapters in Part II analyze how historical scholarship connected to various European national traditions.

Part III considers the historicalwriting of Europe's 'Offspring': the United States, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Brazil, and Spanish South America.

The concluding part is devoted to histories of non-European cultural traditions: China, Japan, India, South East Asia, Turkey, the Arab world, and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Thisis the fourth of five volumes in a series that explores representations of the past from the beginning of writing to the present day, and from all over the world.

This volume aims at once to provide an authoritative survey of the field, and especially to provoke cross-cultural comparisons.
