Abstract

Recent trends in social history are assessed. The meaning, and the limitations of "revisionism" in the study of the French Revolution, and the distinction between "social" and "cultural" history are examined. The shift of the use of social science methods and theoretical ideas in historical study from a controversial proposal to their normal and routine incorporation in works of history is judged to be the most important change of the last few decades.
