Summary and Info
This volume takes an important step towards developing global perspectives on the history of national history writing. With chapters spanning all five continents, contributors address a common framework which has been developed by the editor as part and parcel of his five-year European Science Foundation-funded project on the writing of national histories in Europe. Here the question is how and in which way European national histories may be compared to non-European national histories. In addition the volume pursues the question of the many influences, transfers, adaptations and interrelations between national historiographies in different parts of the globe.
