History Killers: The Book is Here!!!
Anthology of Essays Feature a Mix of Social Commentary and Historical Analysis
History Killers and Other Essays by an Intellectual Historian, published by Champion Books, is now available! You can order it here.
It is a repository for some of my most popular and widely-discussed articles, including the “History Killers” installments, as well as rigorous works of historical scholarship.
Rather than creating a pay-tier for this substack at this time, I prefer to humbly request to my readers to consider buying print copies of my books when they are released. This is for numerous reasons.
First, I seek to keep the History Killers substack free and devoid of pay-tier content for the foreseeable future. I always want the priority of this venue to be for people who are looking for thoughtful reading content that need not hide behind a paywall. As long as this publication exists, this will always be a priority.
Second, I am excited and happy to see my work getting published by traditional, hard copy publishers (both trade publications and academic presses) and want to encourage people to keep print books alive. The printed word is in many ways superior to its digital iterations. As much as I love the convenience of digital media and appreciate venues such as this one for its ability to be shared instantly to a wide audience through email and other platforms, there is something powerful and enduring about a physical book that nothing else can match. The ability to grasp something in your hands and have it potentially transform your worldview and have it simultaneously transcend your physical time and space—and then to be able to hand that book off to a family member, a friend, or someone in a succeeding generation—is truly something to behold.
Please consider supporting this book and spreading the word about it. As Cicero once said, all a person needs to be happy is a garden and a library. I lack a green thumb (so I am no help there), but my work could be comfortably added to your reading shelf, and it would be an honor to have it included in your collection. I appreciate your support in this effort.
In addition to the History Killers book, another work of mine will be published through an academic press later this year. It is the culmination of years of research and writing and I am excited to share more news about it in the coming months.
Thank you, as always, for your interest and your support. You can order the new book, History Killers and Other Essays by an Intellectual Historian, here.
