We are pleased to introduce our newest collectible hardback, which is now available for pre-order via Amazon and will deliver this spring. The Journal of the American Revolution, Annual Volume 2017, presents the journal’s best historical research and writing over the past calendar year. Articles are carefully selected by the editors and then authors are given the opportunity to polish their pieces with important updates. Featuring helpful charts, a comprehensive index, new images and fresh perspectives, the book is designed for institutions, scholars, and enthusiasts to provide a convenient overview of the latest research and scholarship in American Revolution studies.

The first printings have typically sold out in weeks, so we encourage you to buy early (and often).
