This list is designed to offer reading suggestions for advanced undergraduate students, graduates students and the general public regarding historiography (and historical methods). More than simply being concerned with the body of works on historical topics, historiography also tell us something about the ever-evolving nature of the practice of history and how historians have come to comprehend their craft over time. Those works reflect these central issues.

Dream a Little Dream by John Marriott, 2009

“Brion Gysin gave the world his Dreamachine—a perforated shade rotating in front of a light—so that the mind could experience a blissful “alpha state” by stimulating the brain with light. John Marriott’s is a more modest version made of a perforated Budweiser beer can, which, while functioning in the same neuro-mystical fashion as Gysin’s, suggests that there are other quicker means of becoming mentally altered.”
