Over the past thirty years, cultural history has moved from the periphery to the centre of historical studies, profoundly influencing the way we look at and analyse all aspects of the past. In this volume, a distinguished group in international historians has come together to consider the rise of cultural history in general, and to highlight the particular role played in this rise by Peter Burke, one of the most prolific and influential authors in the field.
