Historics: Why History Dominates Contemporary Society

Routledge (2006)
A book on history and theory which takes a fresh new look at the whole subject. It takes as its starting point historical ideas and thought about the past - rather than falling into the usual pattern of endlessly debating what history as a discipline does or should do. He doesn't take it for granted that history as a discipline has to exist at all - and looks at the influence and importance of historical ideas across the disciplines more generally. This is quite a complex argument, but the book is written very clearly and takes on real empirical questions as well as theoretical ones.
