This is a call for contributions for an anthology tentatively entitled A History of World Peace since 1750.

The Register of the Kentucky Historical Society invites manuscript proposals for a special issue, “Debating War in Kentucky,” which will be published in 2019.

We seek papers exploring debates about war and militarism in Kentucky, from the Revolutionary War through the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts in the early 2000s.
