The Companion to Historiography is an original analysis of the moods and trends in historical writing throughout its phases of development and explores the assumptions and procedures that have formed the creation of historical perspectives. Contributed by a distinguished panel of academics, each essay conveys in direct, jargon-free language a genuinely international, wide-angled view of the ideas, traditions and institutions that lie behind the contemporary urgency of world history.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[Bentley's] introduction to 'the project of historiography' is significant and revealing in a number of respects....The book is well organized, and both its scope and achievements are impressive....An immense achievement....The book is genuinely explanatory and is vigorously and enthusiastically written."
-"CLIO
"Can one survey all historical writing, past and present, in a volume of 1,000 pages? Can one get 40 contributors all to write with clarity and concision? Can one not only recount the great debates over the merits of the scholoarship of, say, Christopher Hill or Edward Said, but also trace the development of the philosophy of history? The answer to all these questions is yes, thanks to the consummate skill of Bentley and his colleagues. Historians, whatever their specialties, can read this book with profit and pleasure....General readers; upper-division undergraduates and above."
-"Choice, Feb. 1998
"A valuable addition to academic reference collections."
-"Library Journal, August 1997
"This collection of 40 essays will provide both librarians and their patrons with an invaluable insight into the nature and practice of history at the end of the millenium....The long, discursive essays...will fill an important gap for a wide range of public and academic librarians, historians, graduate students and senior undergraduates."
-"Feliciter: the magazine of the Canadian Library Association, March 1998
..."massive and highly stimulating....rich and multifarious....General readers with serious historical interests will find much to fascinate them in this book...."
-"Sunday Telegraph, London
