Munslow examines history in the postmodern age. He provides an introduction to the debates and issues of postmodernist history. He also surveys the latest research into the relationship between the past, history and historical practice.


Questioning whether history, as a discipline, can accurately recover and represent the content of the past through the form of the narrative, Munslow draws on the work of postmodern theorists to explore such questions as whether empiricism legitimately constitutes history as a separate epistemology; the character of historical evidence and its function; the role of the historian, his or her use of social theory, and the construction of explanatory frameworks in historical understanding; and the significance to historical explanation of narrative form.
