"Past into Print" takes a fresh approach in looking at the creation of historical knowledge, exploring history books and periodicals as sites of conflict and compromise. Traditionally, scholars have been reluctant to acknowledge book-trade influences, either on the history they read and learn, or the histories they write and study. In this book the demands of commerce and of scholarship jostle with debates about patriotism and pedagogy. The human protagonists are historians and publishers, while the theoretical concerns lie with historiography and bibliography. Drawing on the lively correspondence found in publishers' archives, Leslie Howsam shows how mid-Victorian narrative certainties gave way to twentieth-century disciplinary anxieties.
