Books for the Practical Historian

"When I am dead, I hope it may be said / His sins were scarlet, but his books were read." Mark Strand

"Books are the carriers of civilization. They are companions, teachers, magicians, bankers of the treasures of the mind. Books are humanity in print." Barbara W. Tuchman

Banned Books Week is September 21 - September 27, at least for the United States. (We do not know if other countries have anything similar; we would be happy to find out that they do.) We urge everyone to read banned books, for they always seem to expand your minds rather than ruin your morals.

The security-certificate problem that some customers have encountered has been solved, at least for those who've sent in orders the last three days. If anyone still has a problem, let us know, please.

Postage to non-U.S. addresses:

We wish to strongly reiterate: all orders to addresses outside of the United States will require additional postage. We have not yet figured out how to persuade the store's software to put those addresses into a special category that sidesteps U.S. postage. If you live elsewhere, we will send you an email with the additional charges, and offer you the choice to ante up or cancel; if you choose to cancel, your payment will be fully refunded, no questions asked.
