ANN: Call for reviewers in Australian and New Zealand history

H-ANZAU is pleased to announce the revival of our network's own book reviews program. H-Net Reviews play an increasingly prominent role in academic discussions, taking advantage of the flexibility and relative speed of online publication while maintaining the highest scholarly standards. Under the H-Commons platform, list editors can easily crosspost reviews from other networks, expanding the potential readership for reviews published on our network.
