IHR Research Guides

About the series

Aimed at new researchers in history, this series offers practical introductions to specific genres of source, and to sources pertaining to specific sub-disciplines of history. Every volume provides a survey of the historiography, examines relevant methodological issues, looks at available primary sources in different media and formats, and discusses the problems of their access and interpretation. The books include practical case studies and examples to guide your research, and handy tips on how to avoid some of the pitfalls which may lie in wait for the inexperienced researcher. The guides are suitable for advanced final-year undergraduates, master’s and first-year PhD students, as well as for independent researchers who wish to take their work to a more advanced stage.

Series editors: Jane Winters, Simon Trafford and Jonathan Blaney
