This collection of essays surveys the historical discipline during the 1980s in which the essayists find that the new approaches of the 1970s that promised a rich diversity and cosmopolitan pluralism in the face of the uncertainty of historical reality have not brought satisfactory results. The contributors to these essays argue that traditional practices, reassessed and properly understood, constitute the true scientific grounding of the discipline. Objective reality is obtainable, the historian's subjectivity can be understood rationally, historical sources and causal strategies can be managed objectively. In brief, a truthful account of the past is possible, but it must be both objective and subjective. By the editor of "The Writing of History: Literary Form and Historical Understanding" and "Western and Soviet Historiography", which can be read in conjunction with the present volume, and the author of "Tennyson and Clio: History in the Major Poems".
