Summary
"In American History in Transition Yoshinari Yamaguchi provides fresh insights into early efforts in American history writing, ranging from Jeremy Belknap's Massachusetts Historical Society to Emma Willard's geographic history and Francis Parkman's history of deep time to Henry Adams's thermodynamic history. Although not a well-organized set of professional researchers, these historians shared the same concern: the problems of temporalization and secularization in history writing. As the time-honored framework of sacred history was gradually outdated, American historians at that time turned to individual facts as possible evidence for a new generalization, and tried different "scientific" theories to give coherency to their writings. History writing was in its transitional phase, shifting from religion to science, deduction to induction, and static to dynamic worldview".--
