Charleston and the Emergence of Middle-Class Culture in the Revolutionary Era

I'm delighted to announce that my book, Charleston and the Emergence of Middle-Class Culture in the Revolutionary Era will be forthcoming from University of Georgia Press on October 10.  Readers of this list might be particularly interested in the material on a forgotten post-Revolutionary economic boom that shaped attitudes towards trade in Charleston.  More information is available here: http://www.ugapress.org/index.php/books/charleston_and_emergence/.

Reviewers Wanted

Dear H-SC Members,

I was recently invited to become H-SC's book review editor and, with help and guidance from Phillip Stone and Jim Tuten, I want to hit the ground running.  Phillip has done a fine job with this position for several years and I hope to continue that standard -- with your help.

Changes at H-SC

Dear H-SC Members:

    I am writing to announce a number of changes at H-SC. We are bringing on two new editors and planning efforts to revitalize the list and expand its content offerings. This is timely in a number of ways including the fact that H-SC opened its virtual doors in May of 2006 so this is our Ten Year Anniversary!

Announcing the new Resources tab

Greetings H-Net subscribers!

We are pleased to announce the release of the Resources tab, which is now located at the top of all of our Networks. Prior to the release, there was a Media tab that chronologically aggregated all of the contributions uploaded to a particular Network. While the Media tab clearly had some basic archival value, with the development of many diverse projects making use of this material on our Networks, editors asked for a better way to organize that content. The Resources tab is the fruit of those aims.

Thank you, From H-Net

Dear H-Net Readers:

As our fall appeal comes to a close, all of us at H-Net wish to express our heartfelt thanks to the many readers who have contributed during the past few weeks.  Your gifts go directly to our program services, helping us to staff our help desk, make improvements to our web resources, and develop new features that leverage the tremendous talent pool of our hundreds of volunteer editors.
