The Need For Following The Correct And Standard Research Methodology Is Increasingly Felt When More And More Research Works And Learned Monographs Are Coming Out On History Dealing With Social, Economic, Cultural And Other Varied Aspects Of Life, And Thus The Writing Of A Critical, Unbiased And Authentic History Is The Need Of The Hour. It Has Been Well Said In This Book That The Life Breath Of History Is Interpretation, Which Also Gives A Definite Viewpoint To A Work Of History. It Lays That Objectivity, If Carried To An Extreme, Results In Dry And Lifeless Cataloguing Of Events And Subjectivity, If Carried To An Extreme, Results In A Highly Biased Work Often Divorced From Reality, And That An Ideal Work Would Be One That Combines Subjectivity With Objectivity In Due Proportion Without Upholding The One At The Cost Of The Other.The Present Book Deals With The Different Processes Involved In Writing A Good And Authentic Historical Work. Right From The Heuristic Or The Search For Reliable And Credible Historical Sources Such As Archaeological, Epigraphical, Numismatical, Literary, And Archival, It Brings Into Relief The Important Features Of Analytical Operations Aimed At Ascertaining The Credibility Of Sources By Way Of External And Internal Criticism, Synthetic Operations Aimed At Finding Out A Connected, Meaningful And, If Possible, Enlightening Account Of Facts And Forces, Interpreting Them Properly, And Finally The Exposition, In A Powerful And Impressive Style, Of The Fruits Of All This Research And Thinking. The Book Further Shows How Interpretation Itself Is Properly Done By Means Of Various Processes Such As Generalisation, The Argument From Statistics, Analogy, Hypothesis And The Like.A Special Feature Of The Work Is That The Examples Of Books, Authors, References, Etc. Are Mostly Indian. It Gives Minute Rules And Regulations Essential While Writing A Good Research Work. It Is A Constant Companion To The History Scholars In Their Research Journey While For The Teachers Of The Subject It Is An Ideal Reference Book.

Historians have become increasingly sensitive to social and cultural theory since the 1980s, yet the actual methods by which research is carried out in History have been largely taken for granted. Research Methods for History encourages those researching the past to think creatively about the wide range of methods currently in use, to understand how these methods are used and what historical insights they can provide. This updated new edition has been expanded to cover not only sources and methods that are well-established in History, such as archival research, but also those that have developed recently, such as the impact of digital history research. The themes of the different chapters have been selected to reflect new trends in the subject, including landscape studies, material culture and ethics. Every chapter presents new insights and perspectives and will open researchers minds to the expanding possibilities of historical research.

No discipline has been more praised or more criticized than the writing of history. Cioero claimed that history teaches men how to live. Aris totle denied it the very name of science and regwded poetry as the higher wisdom. At various times history has been assigned a command ing or a demeaning statIUs in the hierarchy of sciences. Today one can admire the increasing precision and sophistication of the methods used by historia:ns. On the other hand, Thucydides' History of the PeZo ponesian War still serves as the ideal model of how to reconstruct the historical past. Even those who deny the possibility of an objective reconstruction of the past would themselves likie to be recorded by historians, "objectively" or not. Dislike of history and fear of its verdict are not incompatible with reverence and awe for its practitioners, the historians. So man's attitude to history is ambiguous. The controversy about history continues. Widely differing issues are at stake. Historians themselves, however, are the least engaged in the struggle. Rarely does a historian decide to open the door of his study and join in the melee about the meaning of history. More often he slams it shut and returns to his studies, oblivious of the fact that with the passage of thne the gap between his scientific work and its audience might widen. The historian does not shun the battle, he merely chooses his own battleground.
