H-NewMexico Editorial Transition

Dear H-NewMexico Members,


Many of you know that I have been the H-NewMexico book review editor since 2006.  With the recent conversion to the new H-Net Commons, it’s a good time to change editors.  It’s been a pleasure to serve but now it’s time for a fresh pair of eyes and Carter Jones Meyer has graciously agreed to take over. Thank you, Carter, for taking over this discussion group.
