Product description

Review

'...he has assembled a distinguished team who convey, with spirit and lucidity, the scale and excitement of discovery that 40 years of specialization has produced.' - Blair Worden, Sunday Telegraph

'...should prove invaluable to graduate students and scholars...' - Claude Ury, History: Reviews of New Books

'Readers will find reliable and insightful information presented without recourse to jargon.' - E. A. Breisach, Choice

Reviews of the Hardback edition:

'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

'At last, What is History? gets the successor it deserves...extremely readable and highly stimulating.' - Roy Porter

'...destined to become a must-have text for today's history students.' - Tristram Hunt, BBC History Magazine

'[Cannadine] has assembled a distinguished team who convey, with spirit and lucidity, the scale and excitement of [historical] discovery.' - Blair Worden, The Sunday Telegraph
