History and Narrative, new horizons to history analysis

Geoffrey Roberts' "The History and Narrative Reader" converted to Persian by Farzaneh Dehkordi is published by Imam Sadiq University Press. This book deals with the subject of narratoloy in history analysis and depicts new horizons to history analysis that are beneficial in critical readings.

IBNA: "The History and Narrative Reader" is a comprehensive collection of theories of narrative and history in which Roberts has attempted to pick up theoreticians whose ideas are somehow influential in the field of hermeneutics of history and theories of history and narrative.

The chapters of this book include: Introduction: The history and narrative debate; 1960 – 2000; Part One: Narrative and Historical Understanding Part Two: Narrative and Human Action; Part Three: Narrative and Historical Realism; Part Four: Narrative History and the Linguistic Turn; Part Five: Narrative and Structure; and Part Six: Narrative and the Practice of History.

In the introduction you will read: "Are historians story-tellers? Is it possible to tell true stories about the past?" These are two fundamental questions addressed in this volume. The main point in history is that everyone can obtain a relative understanding of history and fancy it by following the narratives remained from the past. But are these narratives all instances of history? It seems that when dealing with history, everyone presents his own understanding of it in the form of a narrative and here the relationship between history and narrative begins.

Geoffrey Roberts's 'The history and Narrative Reader" is rendered into Persian by Farzaneh Dehkordi in 220 pages and 1000 copies and published by Imam Sadiq University Press.
