Histories: French constructions of the past

Focusing on the changing field of historiography, this text is part of the series charting the radical intellectual transformations that have taken place in post-World War II France. It sets the work of historians associated with the Annales school into the wider context of postwar French historiography, structuralism, quantitative methods and interdisciplinary studies. It contains selections from major foundational texts (Braudel, Labrousse, Bourdieu, Chartier and Wachtel) as well as lesser-known works.
