From Library Journal
These 64 seminal essays by nearly as many authors span the past half-century and offer a multivoiced account of the changing methodologies, assumptions, and controversies in French historiography. The interests of these historians have been predominantly problem-centered economic and social history, and most of them have been associated with the journal Annales. In this work, editors Revel, who is writing a book about Annales, and Hunt (The Family Romance of the French Revolution, LJ 4/1/92) cover structuralism, the rise of quantitative history, and controversies concerning the French Revolution, among other topics. Graduate students and specialists will find this collection useful. Future volumes in the series will concern philosophy, literary criticism, and classical antiquity in recent French thought. For research collections.?R. James Tobin, Univ. of Wisconsin Lib., Milwaukee
