This book explores history in the context of an expanded vision of the historical enterprise. It looks at a number of separate microprofessionalization projects in history that contributed to the current divided state. It examines how competing spheres of professional identity and practice emerged in the historical enterprise from the late nineteenth century until the early twentieth century. It examines the interests of faculty and doctoral students in research universities and highlights the membership of the American Historical Association to situate historians in academia within the larger historical enterprise. It also considers different types of public history work as well as the development of the history teaching profession.
