Publisher Comments:

Modern Historiographyis the essential introduction to the history of historical writing. It explains the broad philosophical background to the different historians and historical schools of the modern era. In a unique overview of modern historiography, the book includes surveys on the Enlightenment and Counter Enlightenment; Romanticism; the voice of Science and the process of secularization within Western intellectual thought; the influence of, and broadening contact with, the New World; theAnnalesschool in France; and the effects of the repression and exile of the inter-war years and the Post-War 'moods.'Modern Historiographyprovides a clear and concise account of this modern period of historical writing.

Synopsis:

Vision, persistence, integrity, and respect for everyone in the workplace--these are all qualities of successful leaders. But Jeffrey J. Fox, the founder of a marketing consulting company, also gives these tips: never write a nasty memo, skip all office parties, and overpay your people. These are a few of his key ways to climb the corporate ladder.
