Books for review

Every so often, the Agricultural History Review is sent books for review that I find difficult to place with reviewers. This is usually because the books cover subjects I am unfamiliar with, rather than because they are uninteresting. Below is a list of books I have received and would like to find reviewers for.

If you would like to nominate yourself or somebody else as a reviewer for one of the below, please contact me using the details here: I would be grateful for a couple of lines of introduction, outlining the nature of your interest in the subject of the book you would like to review. I will use my discretion in responding to requests, and will always prioritise placing books with reviewers who have an active research interest in their subject.
