Book News Annotation:

This volume is a result of an October 1997 conference, "Science and Historical Discipline in a Transcultural Perspective, 1850-1950," held at the German Historical Institute (GHI) in Washington, D.C. The thirteen chapters contributed by international scholars include several papers from the conference plus a few solicited specifically for this text. Coverage includes the development of the historical discipline in countries belonging to different cultures; an investigation of intercultural relations and transfers of historical knowledge between Europe and other countries; and an exploration of how to overcome a Eurocentric view based on the belief of the universal necessity, global validity, and superiority of European ideas of norms and modernization.

Synopsis:

This ambitious work offers the first comprehensive transcultural history of historiography. The contributors transcend a Eurocentric approach not only in terms of the individual historiographies they assess but also in the methodologies they use for comparative analysis. Moving beyond the traditional national focus of historiography, the volume offers a genuinely comparative consideration of the commonalities and differences of history writing in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and Africa. Distinguishing among distinct cultural identities, the contributors consider the ways and means of intellectual transfers and assess the strength of local historiographical traditions as they are challenged from outside. Illustrating just how deeply suffused history writing is with European models, the book offers a broad theoretical platform for exploring the value and necessity of a world historiography beyond Eurocentrism.
