This established Pearson Education series examines the discipline of history as it is conceived today in an intellectual climate that has increasingly questioned the status of historical knowledge. Each volume (regardless of its own perspective and position on the nature of history) will explain the most up-to-date interpretational and historiographic developments that fall within its own historical field. However, this review of the 'latest interpretation and methodology' will not diminish the broad awareness of the 'challenge to history as a discipline'.
We are currently looking for authors who wish to write on these topics - Cultural History, Ecology and History, Economic History, Gender and Sexuality, Biography/Autobiography and History, Race and Ethnicity, History and Memory, The Family, Fascism, European Totalitarianism.
The length for each book is 80,000 words. Each will comprise chapters of 6,000-8,000 words with introductory and concluding chapters, a Guide to Further Reading, a substantial critical Bibliography, and an Index.
The books will be directed at undergraduates, postgraduates, and teaching professionals in history and cognate disciplines. Interested? Or if you have any further themes then contact Professor Alun Munslow, General Editor, to discuss your ideas.
