2022 OAH Sale

As we approach the 2022 Organization of American Historians Conference, we would like to invite you to save 40% on the recent releases featured here—including new books from our series Veterans, African American Intellectual History, Childhoods: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Children and Youth, Native Americans of the Northeast, Public History in Historical Perspective, Culture and Politics in the Cold War and Beyond, and more!

We are also excited to announce the launch of the new series, Activist Studies of Science and Technology, edited by Sigrid Schmalzer. Situated at the intersections of science and technology studies, history, sociology, and anthropology, the series tackles some of the world’s most pressing problems—from climate change to health care, agriculture, and food insecurity.

If you have history projects underway that seem like a good match for our list, we would encourage you to schedule a meeting with our Editor in Chief, Matt Becker. Please visit his Calendly page to view available time slots and connect.
