In: New Perspectives on Historical Writing, 1993. pp.233 - 248
Contents
Historians approach the study of history from many different perspectives. Narrative historians and structural historians have opposing views of the treatment of history. This essay focusses on the debate between the two and discusses the revival of the narrative version of history, that is, the telling of events. The opposing view believes that history should focus on structures, and that the analysis of events is more important than just describing what occured. The author proposes that a middle ground that includes both an analysis of structure as well as a description of events should be possible. Curriculum Area: History Extension
Extent
16 p.
