Forget about all this talk of digital history and social media as a tool to promote the study of history. Todd Andrlik and the good folks at the Journal of the American Revolution are going old school. In November they will publish a print version of the Journal of the American Revolution featuring sixty essays and articles from the popular webzine that promise to debunk "myths and addresses unanswered questions about the Revolution". Here is a taste of what awaits:
In a world of increasing historical illiteracy and apathy, Journal of the American Revolution publishes passionate, creative and smart content intended to make history more palatable. It aims to delight casual readers, novice historians and expert scholars equally. Its content has been featured by MSNBC, Smithsonian, Slate and many more. The book presents groundbreaking story lines via a healthy variety of in-depth features and engaging columns, in both short- and long-form, with an eye for accuracy over legend. Each article is accompanied by high definition images – portraits, maps, photos and more – including some that are appearing in print for the first time.
