Basistexte Wirtschafts- und Sozialgeschichte

(Introductory textbooks Economic and Social History)

The series “Introductory textbooks Economic and Social History” provides 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 that 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 additional literature more accessible.
