JHR welcomes your reviews and suggestions for reviews! In an effort to facilitate more conversations about recent books, we are now offering the new Scholars-in-Dialogue format, which is an opportunity for a discussion-based engagement with a new book. Two (or three at most) scholars agree on a set of questions to consider and produce a dialogic exchange, offering their perspectives and addressing each other’s points. They work together to engage with the book’s contributions (and/or weaknesses) from different perspectives, from an assessment of its historiographical approach (if appropriate) to possible pedagogical implications. This format works best for the type of scholarship that charts new directions or offers new paradigms to the field. The review is intended to stimulate an open-ended conversation about the book.
In addition, please take a look at our website to see the variety of review formats we accept; submissions are highly encouraged.
