The first English translation of Ecrits sur l'histoire--a collection of essays written over a twenty-year period following publication of Braudel's masterwork, La, Meacute;diterraneacute;e--On History sets forth Braudel's reflections on the intellectual framework of his historical studies. Braudel calls on the historian to penetrate beneath the surface of political events to uncover and measure the forces shaping collective existence. Cycles of production, wages and prices, grids of communication and trade, fluctuations and climate, demographic trends, popular beliefs--all of these phenomena are proper subjects of the historian's investigations. It is only through study of the longue dureacute;e, Braudel argues, that one can discern structure, the supports and obstacles, the limits and his experience cannot escape. "The great French historian Fernand Braudel has done what only giants can: he has made Western man confront the problem of time--individual time, historical time, relative time, real time. . . . Braudel, more than any other historian, has wrestled with man's conception of time over time. . . What a magnificent fight he has fought."--Virginia Quarterly Review

Fernan Braudel was the author of several acclaimed histories, including "A History of Civilizations", "On History", "The Structures of Everyday Life", & "The Wheels of Commerce". He died in 1985.
