An Agenda for Regional History
Questions of boundaries, identities, cultural landscapes, and economic regions are addressed in these 19 essays aimed at academics and students interested in regional history. The recent flourish in regional history bears striking parallels with the emergence of urban history in the 1960s; seeking conceptual clarity, this volume showcases the latest research in the field. The growing interest in regions is reflected in the range of disciplinary perspectives deployed in this collection with contributions from geographers and political scientists as well as historians. This volume, with its lively mixture of case studies and conceptual exploration, is a standard work in this growing and exciting area of scholarship.
