Popkin brought me into the dreaded subject of historiography and I didn't want to run away. He does a great job of explaining the ways that scholarship has changed over the many, many years since its establishment. But, beware: if you want to be a professional historian, chapter 8 is not your friend!

An excellent look into the development of the historiography. The culture references made allow the book to connect with newer generations.

A must read book for all history majors in college!! Helped me a lot.

Your basic guide to the 'history of history'. Every historian has their own favorites to emphasize, and Popkin, of course, left out some of my favorites, but his text probably served my students well enough. I found the last chapter a particularly useful guide to modern academia for undergrads--they rarely understand what it actually means to have a professor with a PhD.
