Frontiers of history : historical inquiry in the twentieth century by Donald R Kelley( )

15 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,956 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the third and final volume of his monumental survey of Western historiography, Donald Kelley covers the twentieth century, especially Europe. As in the first two volumes, the author discusses historical methods and ideas of all sorts to provide a detailed map of historical learning. Here he carries the survey forward to our own times, confronting directly the challenges of postmodernism and historical narrative. Kelley offers highly original discussions of historians of the last half century (including friends and mentors), the "linguistic turn," the "end of history," the philosophy of history, and various new methods of histories."
Fortunes of history : historical inquiry from Herder to Huizinga by Donald R Kelley( )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 1,881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Fortunes of History Donald R. Kelley offers an authoritative examination of historical writing during the "long nineteenth century"--The years from the French Revolution to those just after the First World War. He provides a comprehensive analysis of the theories and practices of British, French, German, Italian, and American schools of historical thought, their principal figures, and their distinctive methods and self-understandings." "Kelley treats the modern traditions of European world and national historiography from the Enlightenment to the "new histories" of the twentieth century, attending not only to major authors and schools but also to methods, scholarship, criticisms, controversies, ideological questions, and relations to other disciplines."--Jacket

History and the disciplines : the reclassification of knowledge in early modern Europe( )

11 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays addresses, in specific historical ways and from particular disciplinary standpoints, the problem of knowledge and what used to be called the classification of the sciences. What is, or what passes for, knowledge? What are its divisions, and how should they be related? How is it transmitted, and how can its history be understood and written? Ranging across the epistemological barrier formed by the revolution of modern science, these contributions inquire into the changing disciplinary patterns of the tumultuous times, between the renaissance and the enlightenment, that saw the fragmentation of old ideals and the creation of European modernity." --Book Jacket
François Hotman; a revolutionary's ordeal by Donald R Kelley( Book )

18 editions published between 1973 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 928 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lifetime of Francois Hotman (1524-1590) was one of the most tumultuous periods in European history. Donald R. Kelley shows how this protégé of Calvin and agent of many of the great Protestant princes became involved in ecclesiastical politics, Huguenot diplomacy, and conspiracy. One of the first modern revolutionaries, Hotman rebelled not only against his family and its faith, but against the laws and eventually the government of his country. As an embittered exile lie produced a voluminous body of propaganda aimed at recovering a lost political and religious innocence on which to found a new community. At the same time he was one of the greatest and most versatile scholars of his age, achieving distinction as a jurist, teacher, classical scholar, dialectician, theologian, and historian. His Franco-Giallia and Anti-Tribonian have fascinated generations of political theorists, and his letters, reports, and anonymous works are of inestimable value to historians.

What is property? An enquiry into the principle of right and of government by P.-J Proudhon( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a 1994 translation of one of the classics of the traditions of anarchism and socialism. Pierre-Joseph Proudhon was a contemporary of Marx and one of the most acute, influential and subversive critics of modern French and European society. His What is Property? (1840) produced the answer 'Property is theft'; the book itself has become a classic of political thought through its wide-ranging and deep-reaching critique of private property as at once the essential institution of Western culture and the root cause of greed, corruption, political tyranny, social division and violation of natural law. A critical and historical introduction situates Proudhon's 'diabolical work' (as he called it) in the context of nineteenth-century social and legal controversy and of the history of political thought in general."--Publisher description
The historical imagination in early modern Britain : history, rhetoric, and fiction, 1500-1800( Book )

20 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays by some of the most distinguished historians and literary scholars in the English-speaking world explores the overlap, interplay, and interaction between history and fiction in British imaginative and historical writing from the Tudor period to the Enlightenment. The historians discuss the questions of truth, fiction, and the contours of early modern historical culture, while the literary scholars consider some of the fictional aspects of history, and the historical aspects of fiction, in prose narratives of many sorts. The interests and inquiries of these learned, imaginative, and venturesome scholars cross at many points, casting significant light on and offering numerous insights into the problematic and interdisciplinary areas where 'history' and 'story' meet, interact, and sometimes compete. Despite the theoretical questions posed, the discussions primarily focus on concrete works, including those of Thomas More, John Foxe, Thomas Hobbes, Adam Smith, and Edward Gibbon
