We publish course texts across all key areas of history and for all levels of study. Our introductory textbooks include Arabs and Israelis: Conflict and Peacekeeping in the Middle East, Mastering Modern World History and Shillington’s History of Africa. For upper level courses we publish texts which present students with leading research alongside field-defining new perspectives, such as Queenship in Medieval Europe, Europe’s Long Twelfth Century (A Choice Outstanding Academic Title of 2013), and Sport and Politics in Modern Britain (winner of the Lord Aberdare Prize for Sport History in 2013).
