Narrative and History (Theory and History) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Narrative and History explains the key concepts and practices in the composition and writing of history. It explores how knowledge of the ways in which historians author history affects many conventional understandings of its nature. Major concepts such as truth, objectivity, reference and representation are re-evaluated and re-thought in radical ways. Combining theory with practice, Alun Munslow expands the boundaries of the discipline and charts a new role for unconventional historical forms and modes of expression.

Synopsis:

This book provides an introduction to the narrative theory and practice of writing history.

About the Author
