    History, what and why?: ancient, modern, and postmodern perspectives.Beverley C. Southgate - 1996 - New York: Routledge.
    History: what & Why? is a highly accessible introductory survey of historians' views about the nature and purpose of their subject. It offers a historical perspective and clear guide to contemporary debates about the nature and purpose of history and a discussion of the traditional model of history as an account of the past "as it was". It assesses the challenges to orthodox views and examines the impact of Marxism, feminism and post-colonialism on the study of history.

    Postmodernism in history: fear or freedom?Beverley C. Southgate - 2003 - New York: Routledge.

Postmodernism in History traces philosophical precursors of postmodernism and identifies the roots of current concerns. Beverley Southgate describes the core constituents of postmodernism and provides a lucid and profound (...)
