Is this a work of traditional, Marxist, revisionist, and/or post-revisionist history? Or is it a combination of several historiographical trends?
What evidence do you have that the authors work represents this type(s) of history?
What historical subjects does the author emphasize, (political, military, economic, class, gender, ethnic, social, etc.)?
How might the historical context of the time when the reading was written influence the author?
