Braudel Revisited

Resumen del Libro

libro Braudel Revisited

Fernand Braudel (1912-1985), was a leading French historian and author of, among other books, the groundbreaking The Mediterranean and the Mediterranean World in the Age of Philip II (1949). One of the founders of the Annales School in France, Braudel insisted on treating the Mediterranean region as a whole, irrespective of religious and national divides. Braudels new historiography rejected political history as the dominant discipline and espoused a total history or a history from below that would tell the story of the vast majority of humanity hitherto excluded from the grand narrative. At the time of the books appearance, this premise was revolutionary. The contributors to Braudel Revisited assess the impact of Braudels work on todays academic world, in light of subsequent methodological shifts. Engaging with Braudels texts as well as with his ideas, the essays in this volume speak to the enduring legacy of his work on the ongoing exploration of early modern history.
