Some exciting new reading arrived today

While I have plenty to read in graduate school, I do need to make time for pleasure reading. Today, I received a package containing two books I ordered from Amazon.com. They are part of a larger series put out by The Historical Society, which is a good group to consider joining. I ordered Recent Themes in Historical Thinking: Historians in Conversation and Recent Themes on Historians and the Public. I also have Recent Themes in Military History and Recent Themes in Early American History. All of these books are collections of some of the best essays on the subject covered that appeared in editions of Historically Speaking, which is the Historical Society’s newspaper-type publication that features some great essays and articles that are slightly less formal than the peer-reviewed articles that appear in their journal. I look forward to reading these new books and hope you will consider looking at them and add them to your library.

    I’m just about to take my prelim in Colonial US – Recent Themes in Early American History sounds right up my alley. Thanks for the tip!
