Product description


An impressive, well-written volume that not only addresses the current state of play in social and cultural history, but relates it to influential political and intellectual movements and points to future trends. It will be an extremely useful volume for students at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. - --June Purvis, Emeritus Professor of Women's and Gender History, University of Portsmouth, UK

This engaging collection of essays encourages the reader to think critically about - and productively with - recent work in social and cultural history. In mapping a field characterised by dialogue and collaboration, it historicises current practice, contests conventional categories, and explores new approaches and cross-disciplinary encounters. The contributors explain what social and cultural history is today whilst also making insightful suggestions about its future. This is an essential read for everyone with a stake in how we understand the past. - --Claire Langhamer, Professor of Modern British History, University of Sussex, UK

New Directions in Social and Cultural History's lively essays and essential introduction show us how the discipline has evolved, providing an excellent starting point for history students. It is filled with analysis that is nuanced, thought-provoking, and attuned to how past and present intersect. - --Susan R. Grayzel, Professor of History, Utah State University, USA
