Faculty Books

Members of our department have written and edited books on a wide variety of historical subjects. To celebrate the publishing record of those currently associated with the Department of History (full-time, adjunct, retired, and sessionals) you will find below a list of these works organized by the year of their first publication (although many have been reprinted due to their popularity). Further information for many of the books can be found by clicking on the title below the cover image.
