ABSTRACT
The article discusses the methodological tensions between the disciplines of political history and social history. It describes political historians' emphasis on the history of elections, legislation, and administrations and its compatibility with social historians' emphasis on issues related to race, gender, and class. The ways in which political historians can engage interdisciplinary methods is discussed, along with the ways in which social historians can begin engaging categories outside the typical categories of race, gender, and class.
