20th century Historiography

This HE focuses on a specific group of historians writing in the 20th century. I was prompted to assign this sort of writing assignment because of a recent request in several of my H-Net Discussion Boards for subscribers to suggest which 20th century historians are their favorites, and which historians have had some kind of enduring influence on the craft of history itself. After all, there are some great histories by great historians. There have also been some pretty bad ones! In the end, its all a matter of judgment and preference (like the writing of history itself, right?). So, as you read the chapters on 20th century historiography in Breisach and Bentley please consider the variety of historians and historical schools of thought in the 20th century. (1) Is there a particular historian or group of 20th century historians who have made a difference in historiographical thought? (2) Do you have some sort of affinity with any of the 20th century historians or schools discussed? The essays must target 1250 (minimum) – 1500 (maximum) words, and should begin with a clear and easily identifiable thesis statement. All essays must have a suitable title. Footnotes are required. All sources, as well as the bibliography, must conform to Turabians A Manual for Writers. The essay you submit should be carefully scrutinized for errors. I tire quickly with essays that use “their” instead of “there” or “where” instead of “were.” Proofread, and then proofread some more. NOTE: In general, all-purpose internet sources cannot be used for citation purposes. Exceptions are the scholarly websites and documents available through the APUS Online Library, or other academic websites. While indeed useful for a quick reference, Wikipedia is not considered a valid academic source. [The HE is worth 10% of your final grade.] Submission
