Deconstructing History



Deconstructing History

by Alun Munslow

Deconstructive readings of history and sources have changed the entire discipline of history. And in this second edition of Deconstructing History, Alun Munslow examines history in what he argues is a postmodern age. He provides an introduction to the debates and issues of postmodernist history. He also surveys the latest research into the relationship between the past, history, and historical practice, as well as forwarding his own challenging theories. In this fully up-to-date second edition, Munslow:
· Discusses the limits of conventional historical thinking and practice and responds to the recent critiques of authors including Kevin Passmore, Ludmilla Jordanova, and C.B. McCullagh· Assesses afresh the claims of history as a form of "truthful explanation" · Examines the arrival of "experimental history" and addresses its implications including, for example, "historiophoty"
Including a fully updated glossary and bibliography, Munslow maps the philosophical field, outlines the controversies involved and assesses the merits of the by now familiar deconstructionist position.
