Naresh Angula - Historiography at crosroads Jan, 01, 1970

This is a book which should have been based on original sources and done very elaborately because there is not much work on the subject of Historiography.The book neither reflects a clear understanding of Marxisit method nor does it fit into any ideological frame work. They author should have been fare to the subject but for a preliminary understanding it is ok.
