james Harvey Robinson was an American historian, who co-founded New History, which greatly broadened the scope of historical scholarship in relation to the social sciences. Through his writings and lectures, in which he stressed the new history- the social, scientific, and intellectual progress of humanity rather than merely political happenings- he exerted an important influence on the study and teaching of history. A quintessential Progressive, he combined astute in erudite thinking with a penchant for activism in order to challenge his professional colleagues' "obsolete" conception of history and to demonstrate written history's potential for inspiring social improvement.
