Walk into any bookshop and you’ll see that there has never been a better time to write history. But how should the past be reconstructed? Given our evidence is fragmentary at best, how far should the ‘historical imagination’ be used to get inside the heads of historical figures? Providing a hands-on introduction to the practice of writing history for a popular audience, Alexander Lee – author of The Ugly Renaissance – examines the shifting relationship between fact and fiction, and offers an invaluable guide to historical methodologies, research techniques, and narrative style that will ensure you leave your readers hungry for more!
