Summary: "Destined to become a must-have text for today's history students"--Tristram Hunt 'What is History Now? presents the ideal solution to the dilemma of how to reappraise Carr's book without burying it. If anyone were to provide an equivalent to What is History? for the early 21st century, it would surely be David Cannadine.' - David Armitage 'At last, What is History? gets the successor it deserves. ... extremely readable and highly stimulating.' - Roy Porter 'What is History? strongly influenced the generation of professional historians who came to maturity in the following decades. What is History Now? presents a timely review of the debate forty years on and an expert examination of present trends and anxieties.' - Norman Davies 'The key word in this new book, stimulating and in places provocative, is Now. Various authors, drawing largely on their personal experiences as historians, explore the processes and implications of change.' - Asa Briggs.
