Bloch has always fascinated me through his ideas, surprisingly modern outlook and a visionary along with Febrve. I bought this to help understand different historical perspectives on what it is to study history, his multidisciplinary approach is something which has many contemporary examples. Glad I bought, it and really helps give you perspective to your study. I have always thought self critical reflection is essential to the discipline, which is something Bloch echoes. For such a short book it is incredibly illuminating, much recommended to history students interested in the more abstract, philosophical, and historiographic ideas of history. Going to read this alongside On History by Hobsbawm now.
