The way in which history is written has changed quite dramatically - so much so that the phrase ?the new history? is now commonly used by historians.

Burke cites from the outset that this new history is given resonance because of we are and who we, as nations, have been in the past. The book shows the progression of interest, curiosity and learning about our forefathers, and how they helped to shape their own generations.

The new history is history written in deliberate reaction against the traditional 'paradigm', that useful if imprecise term put into circulation by the American historian of science Thomas Kuhn. It will be convenient to describe this traditional paradigm as ‘Rankean history’, after the great German historian Leopold von Ranke (1795-1886), although he was less confined by it than his followers were.
