E.H. Carr's "What is History?" was published by Macmillan in 1961, since when it has sold hundreds of thousands of copies throughout the world. To mark its 40th anniversary, ten internationally renowned scholars, speaking from a range of historical vantage points, answer Carr's question for a new generation of historians: what does it mean to study history at the start of the 21st century? This volume stands alongside Carr's classic, paying tribute to his seminal enquiry while moving the debate into new territory, to ensure its freshness and relevance for a new century of historical study.
