E. H. Carr's What is History? was originally published by Macmillan in 1961. Since then it has sold hundreds of thousands of copies throughout the world. In this book, ten internationally renowned scholars, writing from a range of historical vantage points, answer Carr's question for a new generation of historians: What does it mean to study history at the start of the Twenty-first century? This volume stands alongside Carr's classic, paying tribute to his seminal enquiry while moving the debate into new territory, to ensure its freshness and relevance for a new century of historical study.

Reviews of the Hardback edition:
'What is History? strongly influenced the generation of professional historians who came to maturity in the following decades. 'What is History Now?' presents a timely review of the debate forty years on and an expert examination of present trends and anxieties.' - Norman Davies
'What is History Now? presents the ideal solution to the dilemma of how to reappraise Carr's book without burying it. If anyone were to provide an equivalent to What is History? for the early twenty-first-century, it would surely be David Cannadine.' - David Armitage
'At last, What is History? gets the successor it deserves...extremely readable and highly stimulating.' - Roy Porter
'...destined to become a must-have text for today's history students.' - Tristram Hunt, BBC History Magazine
'[Cannadine] has assembled a distinguished team who convey, with spirit and lucidity, the scale and excitement of [historical] discovery.' - Blair Worden, The Sunday Telegraph
