Historiographical perspectives on integration

Oliver J. Daddow

Published by Manchester University Press

  • The first book to apply the philosophy of history to the practice of history through a case-study analysis of British policies towards European Integration
  • Explores new directions in the debate about the nature of history, casting light on the crucial role played by historians in constructing the past and in creating its narratives
  • Offers a refreshing and challenging perspective on the nature of history
  • Asserts that historiography is riddled with politics at all levels, and that to write the historian out of texts is to misrepresent what it entails to write history
  • Demonstrates how the philosophy of history has a direct bearing upon the everyday practice of history
