ABSTRACT
The author focuses on social history. He states that the relative novelty of the field creates some need for clarification, to bolster social historians and to inform and sometimes convert others. He believes that the relationship between social and political history remains difficult. He also believes that a problem exists between social history and sociology. He claims that there are opportunities and difficulties in every aspect of social history. He believes that social historians must often ask questions that go beyond their material. He stands by his opinion that traditional questions of historiography must be recast and reassessed for the field.
