Book Description

5 May 2004
In this essential introduction to the writing of Stuart history, Ronald Hutton provides a clear and authoritative guide to both the current condition of the discipline and its historiography. Hutton helps students to understand some of the key recent debates and shows them how to set their reading in context. He also provides a new sense of why historians of the Stuart period, both collectively and individually, perceive the past in particular ways, and shows how these perceptions alter over time.

Product Description


'[This book] provides a brilliantly penetrating discussion of the historiography of the Stuart period over the last 150 years...[,] a thought-provoking exploration of why historians of that period have chosen to write about their subjects as they have...[and] a sparkling portrait of how it felt to be an academic historian during the last quarter of the twentieth century...I can think of few works of history which I have enjoyed reading more.' - Mark Stoyle, English Historical Review

'Intelligently introduces the student to historians as well as to history - and also to why historians and even societies produce the history that they do.' - Diarmid MacCulloch

'This is a consistently lively and vigorous 'textbook with a difference' that lights up different phases of the historiography of the Stuart period. Some of its confident assertions will provoke disagreement. Nonetheless, Ronald Hutton always repays a careful reading...' - Times Higher Education Supplement Textbook Guide

'This is a consistently lively and vigorous 'textbook with a difference' that lights up different phases of the historiography of the Stuart period.' - R.C. Richardson, Times Higher Education Supplement --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
