9780745634074: History and Social Theory

What is the use of social theory to historians, and of history to social theorists? In clear and energetic prose, a preeminent cultural historian here offers a far-reaching response to these deceptively simple questions. Peter Burke reviews the emergence of the fields of history and social science and traces their tentative convergence as he reappraises the relations between them.

Burke first examines what uses historians have made―or might make―of the models, methods, and concepts of the social sciences, and then analyzes some of the intellectual conflicts that are at the heart of the tension between history and social theory. Throughout, he draws from a broad range of cultures and periods to illustrate how history, in turn, has been used to create and validate social theories.

This new edition brings the book up to date with the addition of examples and discussions of new topics such as social capital, globalization, and postcolonialism.

About the Author:

Peter Burke is Professor of Cultural History at the University of Cambridge. His books include Eyewitnessing: The Uses of Images as Historical Evidence, also from Cornell; The European Renaissance: Centres and Peripheries; and A Social History of Knowledge from Gutenberg to Diderot.

Review:

"Burke attends in critically appreciative ways to a remarkably diverse array of scholars and schools in both history and social theory, from Annales figures and British Marxists to social theorists such as Pierre Bourdieu and Anthony Giddens and critical-historical philosophers such as Michel Foucault and Jürgen Habermas."―Journal of American History



"Provides an invaluable overview of prior developments and current trends in historical work by anthropologists, historians, and sociologists."―Contemporary Sociology



"This is much more than the superlative synthesis that one has come to expect and rely upon from Peter Burke. If it is a brilliant account of recent historiography, it is quite as much a substantive contribution to social theory―specifying more powerfully than can most sociologists themselves the character of the social agents who have affected the historical record. The book is supremely useful and an instant classic."―John Hall, Dean of Arts, McGill University

"Sociologists need to think more historically, and historians need to think more theoretically. Peter Burke is an excellent guide for both groups."―Stephen Mennell, University College Dublin

What is the use of social theory to historians, and of history to social theorists? In clear and energetic prose, a pre--eminent cultural historian here offers a far--reaching response to these deceptively simple questions. In this classic text, now revised and updated in its second edition, Peter Burke reviews afresh the relationship between the fields of history and the social sciences and their tentative convergence in recent decades. Burke first examines what uses historians have made -- or might make -- of the models, methods, and concepts of the social sciences, and then analyzes some of the intellectual conflicts, such as the opposition between structure and human agency, which are at the heart of the tension between history and social theory.

This new edition brings the book up to date with the addition of examples and discussions of new topics such as social capital, globalization and post--colonialism.
