The Routledge Companion to Historical Studies provides a much needed critical introduction to the key issues, the historians and philosophers, and their concepts, ideas and theories that have prompted the rethinking of History that has gathered pace in the 1990s. Key concepts for the new history are examined through the ideas of leading historians and philosophers since the eighteenth century such as Kant, Nietzsche, Croce, Collingwood, White, Foucault and Derrida including: class; empiricism, hermeneutics, inference, metanarrative, relativism; and teleology. With an introduction setting out the state of the discipline of history today and alphabetical entries on the key ideas, issues and concepts, The Routledge Companion to Historical Studies explores the exciting challenges that history faces in the late twentieth century.
