Show Summary Details


This chapter aims to define the practical and theoretical significance of the internationalization movement within the American historical guild. The discussions are written from the perspective of a wary beneficiary of this new openness. The chapter also provides a critique based on generalizations that flatten both the varieties and range of philosophies which are found in the current debate. These generalizations are supported by the literature in leading journals.
