Hello All,
I'm new to the site and am desperate for some pointers. The question i need to answer is...
"The difference between a socialist and conservative interpretation of history, post WWII through to the 1980s - using examples from opposing historians, look at key historical world and domestic events to illustrate the differences."

Obviously i don't want the question answered for me! I'm not a cheater, i promise. but a few pointers or where to start would be much much appreciated.
Many thanks
Em

Merry Christmas! and welcome to the Forum. I hope, devoutly, that Mr. Clare knows more about this than I do. So, for the time being, be patient and we will see what, if anything, he can come up with. Meanwhile I will have a look around as well.

Ouch!

I tried googling "socialist historians" "conservative historians" - both in google and google book search.
They are recognised terms, but apparently not in the sense of 'Marxist' historians or 'post-modernist'. Rather, the term seems to be used in the sense of 'historians who are conservatives' and 'historians who are socialists'.

the other problem is that there is nothing relating specifically to their view of the post-WWII world.

Did your tutor give you a bibliography? the names of any historians?

This is way out of the mainstream.
