Narrative in the Historical Sciences: An Interdisciplinary Bibliography

Version of June 1996

Note: A pdf copy of this document, suitable for printing, is available on the Social Science Research Network (SSRN #2542010).

This bibliography was compiled by Robert J. O’Hara for the members of Darwin-L, and academic discussion group on the history and theory of the historical sciences (1993–1997). Additions from Debra Journet, Linnda R. Caporael, and Greg Ransom are gratefully acknowledged. The master copy is maintained in the Files section of the Darwin-L Archives (rjohara.net/darwin). This is a working bibliography: I have not seen all of the items listed, and some citations may be incomplete. My object here was not to be exhaustive, but rather to provide a set of citations that would help advanced students get a sense of what has gone on and is going on across a range of different fields. This bibliography may be freely distributed in print or electronically as long as the references and this introduction remain intact. Additional bibliographies on the history of systematics, on trees of history, and on the works of Stephen Toulmin are also available in the Darwin-L Archives.

Note · June 1998: A few additions and corrections have been made to this bibliography since it was initially compiled in 1996, but no attempt has been made to comprehensively revise it since that time.
