The contributors, all historians of the first rank, consider the criticisms that have been levied against political history in the past decades (elitist, out of touch with reality) and discuss what insights the discipline still produces, what methodologies it uses, and what its future direction should be. Their essays clearly demonstrate how vibrant the field of political history is and how different current approaches are from past emphases on campaigns, elections, and terms of office.
