Summary note
"This book provides a wide ranging and authoritative guide to the often vexed and controversial relationship between history and contemporary theory. It analyses the concepts that concern both theorists and historians, such as power, identity, modernity and post-colonialism, and offers a critical evaluation of them from a historical standpoint." "Written in an accessible manner, History and Cultural Theory gives historians and students an invaluable summary of the impact of cultural theory on historiography over the last twenty years, and indicates likely directions of the subject in the future."--Jacket.
