"Metahistory is something more than a study of philosophies of history (although it is that too, and no doubt the most important work in the field since Collingwood): it is also a methodological manifesto, a more sustained argument for a deep-figural hermeneutic than has been worked out anywhere before now."
"This is a daring, ingenious... tour de force. White has produced a profoundly original 'critique of historical reason.'"
"A book that will simply have to be reckoned with by all historians who have the slightest interest in the genesis and forms of historical narrative."
