Today's students are questioning why they should take courses in the humanities and social sciences. Using a conversational voice, Raab provides an answer by explaining the role of the historian and what she or he does. Fully cognizant that most students will not become historians in universities, Raab provides examples of people who use their historical educations in other environments. Each chapter describes a specific aspect of "doing history," beginning with the spaces where historians work (e.g. archives). Readers are then introduced to the material with which historians work (primary sources) and the collaborations that exist between historians, librarians, and archivists. Raab also explores the impact of the digital age on historical work, the particular skillset imparted to those with an education in history, and the relationship between history and the humanities.

In many respects Nigel is a very ordinary dog; charming, handsome and obedient, as so many are. He is also a much loved family pet. He is also a star. By telling Nigel's story, Monty relates his relationships with the other special dogs in his life in a memoir of his dogs past and very much present. Witty, touching and life-affirming, Nigel: My family and other dogs is wonderfully heart-warming. Monty Don is a great writer coming out of the garden and into the hearts and homes of every dog lover in the UK. 'I have always had a dog, or dogs. I cannot imagine life without them. I am just as much a fan of Nigel as any besotted viewer. In the book I explore why we love dogs and what they mean to us emotionally and domestically. I look back on all the dogs in my life - all of which I have loved deeply and which have been an essential part of my life. So, this is the book of Nigel - but also the book of all our dogs in every British family and a celebration of the deep love we feel for them' Monty Don
The last of the genies. Just one of his wishes could save us all.
