Chapter Summary

This chapter considers the relation between Aron Gurevich's nouvelle histoire and that of the so-called "Annales School"-which was actually more of a group, network or movement of scholars who shared certain general aims than a school in the precise sense of disciples following in the footsteps of a master such as Lucien Febvre or Fernand Braudel. It begins with the general point that the Annales movement, even if it was the most famous and the most successful movement for the renewal of historical studies in the twentieth-century world, was not alone in this respect. It was not the "scientific" or quantitative Annales which attracted Gurevich, still less its Marxist wing-after all, he was strongly anti-Marxist himself. He discusses Braudel in only one essay, and rarely mentions Labrousse. The chapter concludes with a contrast between two great medievalists.

Keywords: Annales movement; Aron Gurevich; Fernand Braudel
