APPENDIX III WORKS ON THE STUDY OF HISTORY

I HISTORICAL METHOD

The best brief introduction is C. V. Langlois and C. Seignobos, Introduction aux études historiques, which is available in a good English translation. A more elaborate work, never translated, is Ernst Bern heim , Lehrbuch der historischen Methode. Five of the best books in English are: John M. Vincent, Historical Research--most of its illustrations drawn from medieval history; F. M. Fling, "Outline of Historical Method" and The Writing of History--most of their examples drawn from modern European history; Allen Johnson, The Historian and Historical Evidence--most of its illustrations drawn from American history; and Homer C. Hockett, Introduction to Research in American History. Among useful volumes of a more general character are: James Harvey Robinson, The New History; Benedetto Croce, History: Its Theory and Practice; Jusserand, Abbott, Colby, and Bassett, The Writing of History; F. J. Teggart, The Processes of History; W. W. Davies , How to Read History; and G. M. Trevelyan, Clio, The Muse, and Other Essays. Some suggestive papers may be found in James Ford Rhodes , Historical Essays.
