Historiography in the twentieth century : from scientific objectivity to the postmodern challenge by Georg G Iggers( Book )

70 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in 8 languages and held by 1,138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Iggers sees the contemporary discipline as a hybrid, moving away from a classical, macro-historical approach toward microhistory, cultural history, and the history of everyday life. Still, while the postmodern critique of traditional historiography offers important correctives to historical thought and practice, it "has not destroyed the historian's commitment to recapturing reality or his or her belief in a logic of inquiry."

The cult of authority; the political philosophy of the Saint-Simonians, a chapter in the intellectual history of totalitarianism by Georg G Iggers( Book )

34 editions published between 1958 and 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There exists an extensive literature on the history of the Saint Simonian movement as well as on various phases of Saint-Simo nian economic, literary, aesthetic, feminist, and pacifist thought and activity. However, until the first edition of the present work, no larger study had undertaken an examination of the important topic of the political thought of the Saint-Simonians. This book attempts a systematic analysis of the political ideas of the Saint Simonians in the crucial years between 1828 and 1832 during which the Saint-Simonians, briefly organized as a well structured movement, formulated the diverse ideas of their master into a systematic doctrine. These were also the years of the greatest influence of the Saint-Simonians on the European public. After 1832 the Saint-Simonian movement dissolved into an informal fellowship of likeminded individuals and the tightly knit Saint Simonian doctrine into a set of loosely related ideas. This study uses as its main sources the rich collection of lectures, sermons, pamphlets, and newspapers published by the Saint-Simonians between 1828 and 1832. Except for minor corrections and an expanded bibliography, the present second edition is identical with the first. I have purposely eliminated the phrase, "A Chapter in the Intellectual History of Totalitarianism," from the subtitle

Finally the book turns to the twin challenges to the western historical paradigms of 'objectivity' and 'progress' mounted by postmodernism and post-colonialism, critically examining the extent to which these might undermine the commitment of the historian to an honest and truthful representation of the past."--Jacket

Marxist historiographies : a global perspective by Q. Edward Wang( Book )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marxist Historiographies is the first book to examine the ebb and flow of Marxist historiographies from a global and cross-cultural perspective. Since the eighteenth century, few schools of historical thought have exerted a more lasting impact than Marxism, and this impact extends far beyond the Western world within which it is most commonly analyzed. Edited by two highly respected authors in the field, this book deals with the effect of Marxism on historical writings not only in parts of Europe, where it originated, but also in countries and regions in Africa, Asia, North and South America, and the Middle East. Rather than presenting the chapters geographically, it is structured with respect to how Marxist influence was shown in the works of historians in a particular area. This title takes a dual approach to the subject; some chapters are national in scope, addressing the Marxist impact on historical practices within a country, whereas others deal with the varied expressions of Marxist historiography throughout a wider region. Taking a truly global perspective on this topic, Marxist Historiographies demonstrates clearly the breadth and depth of Marxism's influence in historical writing throughout the world and is essential reading for students of historiography. -- from back cover

After overcoming first apprehensions, they soon felt Gottingen to be their second home, while maintaining their close involvements in America. After 1966 they frequently visited East Germany and Czechoslovakia in an attempt to build bridges in the midst of the Cold War." "The book relates their very different experiences of childhood and adolescence and then their lives together over almost six decades during which they endeavored to combine their roles as parents and scholars with their social and political engagements. In many ways this is not merely a dual biography but a history of changing conditions in America and Central Europe during turbulent times."--Jacket
