The Postmodern History Readerdraws together in one collection some of the most interesting and influential writing--both for and against--on postmodernism and historiography. Drawing on books and articles from across the whole historiographical range, the impact of postmodernism on historical studies is described and exemplified in challenging and thought-provoking ways. The first sections include seminal articles on the formulation of the postmodern position across disciplines, but with particular reference to history. The book goes on to follow specific debates within the key journals which demonstrate how the whole field developed. The final section is on readings of the Holocaust. Selected material encompasses a range of areas including intellectual and social history, the holocaust debate, history of ideas and social and political theory. Each section starts with an introduction to the carefully defined debate. Included are selections from: Roland Barthes, Jean Baudrillard, TonyBennett, Robert Berkhofer, Robert Braun, Iain Chambers, Diane Elam, Geoff Eley, Geoffrey Elton, Elizabeth Ermarth, Michel Foucault, Elizabeth Fox-Genovese, Susan Stanford Freidman, Saul Friedlander, Gertrude Himmelfarb, Lynn Hunt, Margaret Jacob, Patrick Joyce, Wulf Kansteiner, Hans Kellner, Catrione Kelly, Neville Kirk, Berel Lang, Christopher Lloyd, Jean-Francois Lyotard, Keith Nield, Christopher Norris, Bryan Palmer, Gabrielle Spiegel, Lawrence Stone, Hayden White, Robert Young.
