    One of the best historiography books I ve read, in part because it surveys the history and development, not only specific philosophies and controversies, of historiography As mentioned by others, later parts of the book were geared towards Americans and the chapter that deals with the historian s education was not of great use outside the US , but as the author is writing primarily for readers in that country it is hardly surprising that this should be so nor doe...
