The Oxford History of Historical Writing: Volume 3: 1400-1800

José Rabasa, Masayuki Sato, Edoardo Tortarolo, and Daniel Woolf


Volume III of this series contains chapters on the writing of history globally during the early modern era, from 1400 to 1800. The volumes proceed in geographic order from east to west, beginning in Asia and ending in the Americas. It aims at once to provide a selective but authoritative survey of the field and, where opportunity allows, to provoke cross-cultural comparisons. This is the third of five volumes in a series that explores representations of the past from the beginning of writing to the present day, and from all over the world.

Keywords: early modern era, east, west, Asia, Americas, cross-cultural comparisons, writing
