Williams (emeritus, history, Davidson College) provides an overview of the major methodological issues for producing historical research and includes discussion of sources and evidence, credit and acknowledgement, narrative and explanation, interpretation, and speculation. He also ruminates on the relevance and modes of history, considering the social history of everyday people, oral history, public history, the study of material culture, and analysis of contemporary events. Throughout he discussion he brings in illustrative examples of recent controversies within the field, such as the plagiarism charges against Stephen Ambrose and the criticisms of the scholarship of Michael Bellesiles.
