Writing history can take an author -- and ultimately a reader -- on a journey through time, across the globe and into the lives of others. This book offers great advice to writers, such as: * how much research is necessary? * when should you start writing? * should you structure your work chronologically or thematically? * how do you write a compelling narrative? Drawing upon the deep experience of two historians who have written many histories themselves, How to Write History that People want to Read explains how to succeed in writing exciting historical narratives. It explores why some historical writing is not so engaging, and why some of it is as good as any writing you will ever read. With many practical tips about how to research and write history in many different genres, Ann Curthoys and Ann McGrath provide moral support and experienced mentoring company for all historians involved in the often-lonely process of researching and writing. Perfect for historians of all levels, this book is an indispensable guide to writing history.
