Basistexte Wirtschafts- und Sozialgeschichte

(Introductory textbooks Economic and Social History)

The series “Introductory textbooks Economic and Social History” provide surveys of basic knowledge of historical research for students and the general readership. The series’ topics are chosen by means of relevant contemporary social problems or research discussions. These are linked with a survey of historical developments, which concentrates on structural approaches and aspect-centred historical research. Particular attention is devoted to historiographical schools and methods as well as relevant sources and materials. An annotated bibliography makes accessible additional literature.
