Review from previous edition The stellar cast of authors... [introduce] the reader to some of the most exciting developments in the field of history over the past three decades.... the book achieves a great deal. (Stefan Berger, Times Literary Supplement)
Ambitious...rich and challenging...makes some significant contributions (Alix Green, Reviews in History)
How has the writing of history changed over the past half century? What are the topics and issues that interest historians today? These questions, and many more, are addressed in the Concise Companion, a pioneering and exceptionally stimulating volume of essays which indicate some of the ways in which the challenges of globalization are forcing historians to rethink their approaches to the past. (Sir John Elliott, Regius Professor Emeritus of Modern History, University of Oxford)
Ulinka Rublack has created a true companion volume for readers of recent and current historical writing. In an astonishing feat of editorship, she brings together some of the best living historians and some insuperable essays on the state and drift of the subject. (Felipe Fernández-Armesto, William P. Reynolds Professor of History, Notre Dame University)
About the Author
Ulinka Rublack teaches early modern European history at Cambridge University and is a Fellow of St John's College. One of the most original historians of her generation, she is widely known for her books Reformation Europe and The Crimes of Women in Early Modern Germany (the latter published by Oxford University Press) and, more recently, Dressing Up: Cultural Identity in Renaissance Europe, which is also published by Oxford University Press.
