The Craft of Microhistory


What problems does does microhistory solve for historians since “the linguistic turn”? "Microhistory" examines this historical method from its invention in the 1970s in Italy to its widespread use today among historians of many fields. The book explores five problems: narrative and time, interpreting evidence and the law, individual agency, historical contexts, and quantitative methods.
