History Today Blog and other things…

It’s been kindly brought to my attention that the History Today editor, Paul Lay, now has his own blog over here. In one of his first posts, he reviews two recent and forthcoming works on the civil war, John Adamson’s edited collection with Palgrave, and Blair Worden’s civil war narrative (out at the end of Jan.)

Worden’s book is obviously designed to chime in with the 360th anniversary of the regicide, also the subject of a conference organised by the London Socialist Historians Group. Perhaps another fitting anniverary for a mini blog carnival?
