Paperback, 05/07/2017, £6.50

In The Age of Revolution, Eric Hobsbawm focuses on the tumultuous late 18th and early 19th centuries.

Richard J. Evans' In Defence of History

Paperback, 15/07/2017, £6.50
£5.85
Postmodernist thinkers consider history to be not very far removed from a work of fiction, something dependent on historians' own interpretations of the past. Evans, however, argues that we can trust history and it is possible to be objective about what happened and what caused it to happen.
