Product description

Defining cultural history, Peter Burke claims, 'is rather like trying to catch a cloud in a butterfly net'. In this volume, Anna Green provides a coherent and accessible introduction to the major theoretical approaches and key concepts within this most diverse of historical fields. "Cultural History" explores the conceptual, affective and imaginative worlds of human consciousness, as reflected in elite intellectual works as well as everyday social beliefs and practices.

Review quote

'Green is evidently much concerned in her work to address the question of cultural change and the adequacy of historical accounts of it as an acknowledged problem in the past for cultural historians. This particular issue emerges as a sort of touch-stone with which to identify the best forms of work in cultural history. Green is rigorous and precise in her handling of this matter, and is an excellent guide.' - Gary Farnell, University of Winchester
