Tom Lawson

Published by Manchester University Press

Issues in Historiography MUP

  • The first comprehensive survey and interpretation of Holocaust historiography since the 1980s
  • Accessibly written, this volume will be invaluable for both sixth form and undergraduate students of the holocaust
  • Argues for the enduring importance of History in the light of the post-modern challenge
  • It demonstrates that History is properly understood as a conversation between past and present rather than as a window on the past
  • Guides the reader through the major debates in Holocaust historiography and shows how all of these controversies are as much products of their own time as they are attempts to uncover the past
