Originally published in 1934, this book examines whether Christianity's emphasis on 'historic happenings' is 'in line with the nature of history as the modern historian conceives it', whether the Christian devotion to the historical person of Jesus can be justified, and considers the role of God's providence in human matters.

'Not only one of our most distinguished historians but also one of the most valuable contributors to historical theory' Spectator In formulating an answer to the question of 'What is History', Carr argues that the 'facts' of history are simply those which historians have chosen to focus on. All historical facts come to us as a result of interpretive choices by historians influenced by the standards of their age. Now for the first time in Penguin Modern Classics, with an introduction by Richard J. Evans, author of the Third Reich trilogy.

This title, first published in 1970, with revised editions in 1981, and again in 1989 has been totally rewritten. Addressing the key questions of what history is, and why and how one studies it, this is a positive affirmation of the vital importance to society of the study of the past, and of the many crucial learning outcomes which accrue from historical study. There is a great deal of new material, engaging with and rebutting postmodernist criticisms of the history of the historians, and explicating more fully the author's pioneering work on how exactly historians analyse and interpret primary sources, and how they write their articles and books.

In this original argument, Michael Stanford proposes a single structure to incorporate all aspects of history -events, evidence, interpretations, books and lectures, popular ideas and social effects - into one comprehensive whole. Stanford grounds his study in the common-sense meaning of the word, 'structure'; he then composes one paradigm encompassing the organization of history as a whole and the organization of each of its parts. Dr Stanford locates the poblems of studying story, both philosophical and practical. He clarifies the issues and exemplifies the current thinking of both historians and philosophers.

In this timely collection, key pieces of writing by leading historians are reproduced and evaluated, with an explanation and critique of their character and assumptions, and how they reflect upon the nature of the history project. The authors respond to the view that the nature of history has become so disparate in assumption, approach and practice as to require an informed guide that is both self-reflexive, engaged, critical and innovative. This work aids a positive re-thinking of history today, and will be of use both to students and to their teachers.
