Abstract: Modern historiography observed a continuous change in the domain of thinking and creative activity of the historians. Social history has emerged as a new trend of historical thinking. The first half of the twentieth century witnessed many theories and writings on social history as a rising phenomena. The period of emergence of social history canĀ· be dated back to the second half of the twentieth century. As a specific academic area, social history is quite new as it was not been treated as a specialized academic field until the 1950s. Essentiality of interdisciplinary social history gradually arose. One of the significant features of the new social history is its concern with common men and common experiences - the business of everyday life. The approach and nature of writing social history creates much controversy and various differences of opinions among the specialists.
