Seeking book reviewers for JHistory

Hello everyone.  

 I have been appointed as the new book review editor for JHistory and I’d like to invite anyone who is interested in reviewing a book to get in touch with me.   We have a long and impressive list of books available now and I’d love to start assigning them.  The list includes exciting new titles on a wide variety of topics, both US and international.  I would be eager to hear from both new reviewers and veterans. 

Our reviews typically run between 1000 and 1800 words.  I know we are all very busy and I will be flexible with deadlines.
