RETHINKING HISTORY: THE JOURNAL OF THEORY AND PRACTICE invites proposals for
a themed issue entitled ³Liberalism, Conservatism, Radicalism, and
Historical Materialism.² The issue is part of Volume 13, will be published
in 2009, and is guest edited by Dennis Dworkin, Associate Professor of
History, at the University of Nevada. Reno.
While historians have often prided themselves on their objectivity and
detachment, it is well known that some of the most influential historical
texts have been politically impassioned. Some of the most famous examples
come from the various traditions of ³history from below,² but they are not
limited to these, and they exist across the political spectrum.
