Historical methods are at the foundation of research in the social sciences. This synthesizing and integrative project on the methodology of historical social science addresses programmatic objectives, interpretive principles, explanatory logic, and substantive applications to form a unique contribution to the field. Historical Methods in the Social Sciences offers the broadest disciplinary coverage available - with contributions from prominent historians, sociologists, anthropologists, political scientists, economists, psychologists, and philosophers - and also features a deeper and broader interdisciplinary engagement with the most pressing issues of theory and method. By republishing many of the most seminal contributions in the field of historical social science, this four-volume set draws together some of the most illuminating reflections on historical-sociological research practices presently available, and should thus serve as an indispensable scholarly source for all those engaged in this interdisciplinary enterprise.
