E.H. Carr's "What is History?" was originally published by Macmillan in 1961. Since then it has sold hundreds of thousands of copies throughout the world. In this book, ten international scholars, writing from a range of historical vantage points, answer Carr's question for a new generation of historians: what does it mean to study history at the start of the 21st century? This volume pays tribute to Carr's seminal enquiry while moving the debate into new territory, to ensure relevance for a new century of historical study.
