Synopsis

The volume makes available to English readers an important ongoing discussion centred in Germany but having clear connections with international developments in historiography. European History Quarterly The essay offers an excellent and nuanced discussion of comparative history's fundamental assumptions and approaches, its strengths and weaknesses, its possibilities and limits...Scholars or students looking to refresh their understanding of the methods and challenges of comparative history and to learn how German historians discuss transnational approaches will find much to appreciate in this collection, which is particularly well suited to the needs of graduate seminars. If this book helps end the overblown and sometimes petty arguments over which method will reign supreme and helps us take advantage of the obvious benefits of each approach, Haupt and Kocka will have done us a great service. Canadian Journal of History/Annalees canadiennes d'histoire Since the 1970s West German historiography has been one of the main arenas of international comparative history.

It has produced important empirical studies particularly in social history as well as methodological and theoretical reflections on comparative history. During the last twenty years however, this approach has felt pressure from two sources: cultural historical approaches, which stress microhistory and the construction of cultural transfer on the one hand, global history and transnational approaches with emphasis on connected history on the other. This volume introduces the reader to some of the major methodological debates and to recent empirical research of German historians, who do comparative and transnational work.

Previously, he was at the Universities of Bremen (1974-93), Halle (1993-98), and Bielefeld (1998-2004).
