Autorentext

Callum Brown is Professor of Religious and Cultural History, University of Dundee. His previous publications include The Death of Christian Britain (Routledge 2001) which controversially used postmodern theory to argue that Christian culture is dead in Britain, killed by cultural change from the 1960s.



Klappentext

The first clear guide to the minefields and meanings of postmodernism for history students.

  • The book provides a step-by-step guide to postmodern theory for undergraduate students of Historical Theory and Historiography courses ? often compulsory modules
  • Shortest and clearest introduction available to this essential yet challenging topic
  • It provides examples of how historians have used postmodern theory in their research and writing
  • It summarises anti-postmodernist criticisms and gives ways of responding to them
  • The book aims to empower those frightened by postmodern theory and the very idea of it.

This work offers a guide to postmodern theory, discusses how historians have used it in their research and writing, and assesses criticisms and ways of responding to them. It serves as a companion to courses on Historical Theory and Historiography.
