Editorial Reviews


"[White] is a master of critical and provocative thought... Figural Realism... deserves to be read by historians in search of rejuvenating a sense of theoretical enlightenment." -- Johan W. N. Tempelhoff, H-Ideas, H-Net Reviews

"A collection of essays by one who has arguably changed the course of historiography in the past twenty years... Any serious historian will need to engage the issues and answers that White raises." -- Fred W. Burnett, Religious Studies Review

"[A] fascinating meditation on modernism or, more accurately, the effects of modernism... In this book, White confirms that he remains an active and important thinker." -- David W. Price, Southern Humanities Review

"White lays out his arguments with a clarity and rigor that few can match." -- Choice


"Of all the writers on subjects connected to tropology, White is surely the best at making the complex both engaging and approachable. This is an important book." -- James M. Mellard, Northern Illinois University
