Re: The shift from Political History to Social History
Just to further the discussion, by going Zen-like...
Is everything old, new again?
Maybe you are now coming to discover the same "point" or benchmark on your personal Path and Journey towards "Life in the Past" that others have already discovered on theirs 5, 10, 20 years ago as they shift toward the right on the ever-evolving F/M/C/P/H/A Paradigm?
I do not go back that far, but I know/knew professors who were teaching American, Central American, South American, European, and Asian social history in the late 1960's and early 1970's.
Maybe you have not encountered shifts but rather just came to the some of same or similar milestones in your own growth, progress, and evolution?
