The book introduces history as a theoretical discipline. Green examines the many pitfalls of historical writing and demonstrates that historical truth is a most elusive quarry. Each chapter considers a specific theoretical orientation, including: the commercial model initiated by Adam Smith and pursued by Henri Pirenne and others, the demographic model first formulated by Malthus, the Marxian model (or models), and the approaches of Weber and Sombart who identified religious forces as the chief engines of historical change.

WILLIAM STRAUSS and NEIL HOWE. New york london toronto sydney.

William Strauss and Neil Howe posit the history of America as a succession of generational biographies, beginning in 1584 and encompassing every-one through the children of today. Their bold theory is that each generation belongs to one of four types, and that these types repeat sequentially in a fixed pattern. The book "Generations: the History of America's Future" is one that attracted me a great deal from finding about it on an astrology site about the outer planets. When one removes the mythology of astrology, the book proved initially very fascinating, because Strauss and Howe described four types of generation that they saw as repeating itself over up to five centuries.

A popular history book that covers the general history of Native Americans until European contact. It discusses both North and South America. Although Mann is not a professional historian, his work is very thought-provoking and approachable for a lay-audience. He also has a follow-up book, 1493, which covers interactions between Europeans and Native Americans post-contact. In particular, deals with discussions by Northern Europeans and the Spanish, but vital contributions of Colonial writers as well, over the "objectivity" of early sources, racial theories, and concepts of civilization.

Home Browse Books Book details, The Dynamics of World History. The Dynamics of World History. By Christopher Dawson, John J. Mulloy. But in that time a greater change has taken place in man's ways of living than in all the preceding centuries of recorded human existence. The inventions introduced by the scientific revolution of the past two centuries have transformed the face of nature and of human society, and in all the five continents people are being moulded by the standardizing influences of a technological civilization.

Green offers a remarkably lucid, erudite, and insightful description and analysis of the theoretical foundations of modern historical writing. He is the first to provide an orderly introduction to the several systematic models by which leading modern historians have attempted to explain continuity and change. This cogent survey is essential to an understanding of modern Western historiography.

The book introduces history as a theoretical discipline. Green examines the many pitfalls of historical writing and demonstrates that historical truth is a most elusive quarry. He addresses periodization, the manner in which past time is divided, showing how prevailing modes of periodization have evolved in the West. Part two of the book is concerned with the dynamics of change in European history. Each chapter considers a specific theoretical orientation, including: the commercial model initiated by Adam Smith and pursued by Henri Pirenne and others, the demographic model first formulated by Malthus, the Marxian model (or models), and the approaches of Weber and Sombart who identified religious forces as the chief engines of historical change. Part three addresses models of change being employed in world history, particularly the world-system approach of Frank and Wallerstein and the creative orientations of environmental historians. In his conclusion, Green returns to the question of whether the theoretical models of change currently in use among historians are consistent with contemporary modes of periodization. The bibliography is extensive.
