  • Information


Based on the assumption that reality, reference and representation work together, this introductory textbook explains and illustrates the various ways in which historians write the past as history.

For the first time, the full range of leading narrative theorists such as Paul Ricoeur, Hayden White, Frank Ankersmit, Seymour Chatman and Gerard Genette have been brought together to explain the narrative-making choices all author-historians make when creating historical explanations.

Combining theory with practice, Alun Munslow expands the boundaries of the discipline and charts a new role for unconventional historical forms and modes of expression. Clear but comprehensive, this is an ideal resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students taking courses on History and Theory, History and Method, and Historiography.
