Important and timely, this fascinating collection of tales from a multitude of repositories and record offices removes all sorts of archives from the historian’s grasp (though there are many extraordinary and brave historians writing here) and restores their meaning to politics and society, to the telling of individual and collective pasts. Carolyn Steedman, author of Dust: The Archive and Cultural History.

For Trevor-Roper, history was full of contingency, and the story of the past was resolved by accident and through the particular choices . A notable thesis propagated by Trevor-Roper was the general crisis of the 17th century.

For Trevor-Roper, history was full of contingency, and the story of the past was resolved by accident and through the particular choices that particular individuals made in the time at question. Though Trevor-Roper often acknowledged the impact of social trends upon history, in his view, it was the actions of the individuals that made the difference. However, in his studies of early modern Europe, Trevor-Roper did not focus exclusively upon political history, but rather sought to examine the interaction between the political, intellectual, social and religious trends of the period.

This book represents a collection of papers analysing Ammianus's writings from a variety of perspective, including Ammianus as historian of, and participant in, Julian's Persian campaign, his identification with traditional religious attitudes and values in Rome and his view of the Persian Magi. The contributors engage especially with the concept of self-identification. This collection of studies by eminent Catholic historians moves the discussion to a new level.

Collection of writings from Kentucky
This was a fantastic find for researching an ancestral area. There are many many great stories about Lyon County Kentucky in this book, including one on my 3 times great grandfather. Each chapter is new "story" and they are written in a way that makes it very accessible to any reader. This is not a typical dry boring history book. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to add context to or expand on their genealogy work for relatives from this area. It was truly an entertaining and fun read.
I bought this as a gift for a friend whose family came from this area and she was very pleased that it gave her a lot of information she was needing for her geneology research and information in general she did not know. It even mentioned some of her family members by name. Very informative book. I was very pleased to find it on Amazon when I could not find it anyplace else.
