Celebration of Books

This will be a celebration of books, by members of the School of History over 2018 and 2019.  It's not everything we have published even in book form, but it draws attention to the liveliness of the School's research culture, which includes much besides this dozen.  it will also be an opportunity to find out what your firends, colleagues, supervisors and teachers have been up to over the last few years.
