History, Historians, and the Dynamics of Change

Synopsis

Examines the competing theoretical models that historians use to explain the process of continuity and change--including those founded in the great philosophers, as well as contemporary environmental historians. Green emphasizes the importance of such systematic models for any true appreciation of the dynamic process characterizing historical change. The work also considers the validity of current modes of "periodization," or the way in which time is divided to render the past manageable.
