History and Social Theory


Product Description
Product Details


"Burke attends in critically appreciative ways to a remarkably diverse array of scholars and schools in both history and social theory, from Annales figures and British Marxists to social theorists such as Pierre Bourdieu and Anthony Giddens and critical-historical philosophers such as Michel Foucault and Jurgen Habermas."-Journal of American History "Provides an invaluable overview of prior developments and current trends in historical work by anthropologists, historians, and sociologists."-Contemporary Sociology "This is much more than the superlative synthesis that one has come to expect and rely upon from Peter Burke. If it is a brilliant account of recent historiography, it is quite as much a substantive contribution to social theory-specifying more powerfully than can most sociologists themselves the character of the social agents who have affected the historical record. The book is supremely useful and an instant classic."-John Hall, Dean of Arts, McGill University "Sociologists need to think more historically, and historians need to think more theoretically. Peter Burke is an excellent guide for both groups."-Stephen Mennell, University College Dublin
