    Abstract

    This article stresses the adverse influence that the growing prominence of cultural history has been taking in historiographical practice as opposed to social history. From her standpoint of colonial and imperialist history, the author points out that cultural relativism has implied giving up comparative models enabling a grasp of the phenomena in all their complexity, putting forward the need for a social history approach aspiring to a globalising understanding of the phenomena.
