History as an Art of Memory
Patrick H. HuttonPaper: $27.95
This challenging but richly evocative effort to integrate historical methodology, recent philosophy of history, and the newest trends of critical thought in the social sciences and the humanities is strongly recommended.
Gathers together Hutton’s stimulating investigations of a wide range of thinkers from Vico to Foucault. Impressively learned yet concise and elegant, the book maps major historiographical trends and marks out paths for postmodern historians.
