This introductory chapter focuses on the study of history as it developed during the first half of the 19th century. It was during this period that it evolved as a distinct branch of knowledge with its own principles and methods, and as a profession with its own procedures and institutions. This process began first in Germany and was followed elsewhere in Europe. This introductory chapter explains that the study of history was also taken to places where Europeans settled and taken up by other societies as they responded to European supremacy. By the first half of the 20th century, historical research was an international phenomenon with a number of common characteristics.

Keywords:   history, Germany, Europe, European settlement, European supremacy, historical research
