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 over, 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 continue reading banned books, for they always seem to expand your minds rather than ruin your morals.

Only eighty days left until Christmas! Order early, order often, and we might just be able to get your books to you in time!

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.
