Researching and Writing History

£40.00

Product description

The central principle of this book is to investigate how to discipline ourselves to write better. This inevitably means thinking about the processes of research i.e. how do we find and analyze evidence and then convert our thoughts into a reasoned yet imaginative reconstruction of the past.
The book is sub-divided into twelve self-contained sections so it is easily navigable. Chapter One discusses the state of Local History at the end of the 20th Century. Chapters 2-9 deal with the various stages of practical research and writing. The final 70 pages of the book, 22 appendices, provide more detailed information, examples of writing and practical exercises.
Published in 1999 as a substantially revised and updated version of the original publication 'Writing Local History', (1981). The book is in very good, clean condition. Of interest to historians and those wishing to learn about research and writing methods.
