'What is History? strongly influenced the generation of professional historians who came to maturity in the following decades. 'What is History Now?' presents a timely review of the debate forty years on and an expert examination of present trends and anxieties.' - Norman Davies

'What is History Now? presents the ideal solution to the dilemma of how to reappraise Carr's book without burying it. If anyone were to provide an equivalent to What is History? for the early twenty-first-century, it would surely be David Cannadine.' - David Armitage

Format: Paperback
I would recommend this book to anyone interested in keeping up-to-date with the development of History as a discipline in last few decades. The book will never generate academic shockwaves on the scale of E. H. Carr's `What is History?', but it nonetheless gathers together and presents effectively the insights of today's experts on various sub-fields within the discipline.

The book begins with a general introduction by Richard Evans (author of `In Defence of History') on `What is History? - Now', followed by chapters by other historians discussing Social, Political, Religious, Cultural, Gender, Intellectual and Imperial History. The discussions are on the whole balanced, well-argued and served up in manageable chapter portions. I found the book extremely helpful as a historiographical overview both as a history undergraduate and graduate student.

Format: Hardcover
The book has got to be one of the hardest reads available on the subject. compared, to say Richard Evans' book 'In Defense of History', it is almost impossible to read.
the book also fails to explain many of the key aspects used within it and has a fragmentary feel to it. on the key aspect there is most notably no explanation of post modernism or its heavy inpact on modern history. the books different writers also make it hard to read as no two have the same tone.
i would advise against buying this book.
