The study of history has changed dramatically in recent decades. History in Practice explores the discipline's breadth, its complexities and the tasks it takes on. For this new edition of her respected and widely used book, Ludmilla Jordanova has revised the text and added a new chapter that takes into account recent world events. She discusses the role of the internet, globalisation, world history and the current enthusiasm for military history.
