Editorial Reviews

Review

“I found Lost Worlds highly stimulating. It taught me new things about nineteenth-century historiography and made me rethink things I thought I knew about the Annales school. Dewald’s book should attract a wide audience among French historians and people interested in the development of historical thought.”

—Jeremy D. Popkin, University of Kentucky



Lost Worlds provides a provocative new analysis of French cultural contexts that contributed to the emergence of modern social history and the creative, critical insights of modern historical thought.”

—Lloyd Kramer, Canadian Journal of History



“This book is an outstanding scholarly achievement that explores a revolution in scholarly thought with uncommon grace and erudition.”

—S. Bailey, Choice



“Dewald’s open-minded, thoughtful, judicious approach draws on novels and literary criticism as well as historiography. His lucid style and coherent argumentation make his book a joy to read.”

—Laurence M. Porter, French Review



“The book offers a series of intelligent and engaging close readings of unfamiliar texts, and the analysis, while at times overstated, is thought provoking.”

—Siân Reynolds, European History Quarterly
