"New Perspectives on Historical Writing" by Peter Burke is a collection of essays that explores different methodologies and approaches to writing history. Burke brings together various historians who discuss topics such as the use of social science methods, the impact of cultural history, and the importance of narrative. The book aims to offer innovative perspectives and stimulate debate on how history is researched and written.

Since its first publication  New Perspectives on Historical Writing has become a key reference work used by students and researchers interested in the most important developments in the methodology and practice of history. This new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated and includes an entirely new chapter on environmental history.

Peter Burke is joined here by a distinguished group of internationally renowned historians, including Robert Darnton, Ivan Gaskell, Richard Grove, Giovanni Levi, Roy Porter, Gwyn Prins, Joan Scott, Jim Sharpe, Richard Tuck, and Henk Wesseling. The contributions examine a wide range of interdisciplinary areas of historical research, including women’s history, history "from below," the history of reading, oral history, the history of the body, microhistory, the history of events, the history of images, and political history.
