Historiography is the writing of history and the study of such writing, particularly that based on critically examining sources, choosing specific details from authentic materials within those sources, and finally, amalgamating all these details into a history that can withstand an analytical scrutiny. This pithy volume delves into a thorough examination, beginning with Egypt, where the world’s earliest annals were penned. The text then takes the reader through the evolution of historiography, winding through its most important human activities, questions, and understandings. This thought-provoking book also guides readers through the theories and the history of historical writing.
