Remembering the Modern World: History in Our Midst – Routledge Series

Remembering the Modern World: History in our midst, Routledge series

On 24 April Routledge published the fifth volume in the Remembering the Modern World series, a multi-volume project launched in 2013 and edited by CHRG historians, Tony Joel and David Lowe

This fifth instalment, by Carola Lentz and David Lowe and with contributions from Jon Ritchie, is Remembering Independence and considers the ways in which independence has been contested and remembered in cases studies from post-war Africa, Asia and the Pacific. We join with Carola, David and Jon in celebrating the publication of Remembering Independence.

With two more volumes to appear in 2018, there will be seven by the end of the year. Two further volumes are planned for publication in 2019.

The series has a strong spine of CHRG contributors and it has fostered a network of distinguished historians from around the world, as can be seen in a re-cap of publications to date:
