Synopsis

Part of the Chinese University Press's three volume series on the construction of Chinese disciplines, Transforming History examines the profound transformation of historical thought and the practice of writing history from the late Qing through the mid-twentieth century. The authors devote extensive analysis to the common set of intellectual and political forces that shaped the study of history, from the ideas ofevolution, positivism, nationalism, historicism, and Marxism to political processes such as revolution, imperialism, and modernization. Also discussed are the impact and problems associated with the nation-state as the subject of history, the linear model of historical time, and the spatial system of nation-states. The result is a convincing study that illustrates how history has transformed into a modern academic discipline in China.
