Journal of the American Revolution and Westholme Publishing Announce Partnership
The popular online history magazine Journal of the American Revolution and acclaimed nonfiction publisher Westholme Publishing, LLC have joined forces to publish annual hardcover volumes with the inaugural book slated for May 2015 in a multi-year agreement.
Utilizing the depth and breadth of Journal of the American Revolution's content archives, the books will be designed for both scholars and enthusiasts alike, featuring a vast collection of new essays and remastered articles by scores of American Revolution experts.
"These will be extremely attractive and resource-rich annual editions that the history community will find enjoyable to read, collect, and reference," said Westholme CEO Bruce H. Franklin. "Todd Andrlik and the folks at Journal of the American Revolution have done a remarkable job breaking the conventions of historical research and writing. Westholme will use its publishing expertise to produce and distribute these important volumes, each filled with the latest ground-breaking research in revolutionary-era history. The books will complement the online resources of the Journal and allow this work to reach different markets. The volumes will also serve to capture the best original research of a given year."
Journal of the American Revolution is the largest online history magazine focused on the Revolution and Founding era. It is edited by author-historians Todd Andrlik, Hugh T. Harrington and Don N. Hagist, and features peer-reviewed works by more than sixty authors, including Thomas Fleming, Ray Raphael, J. L. Bell, Andrew O'Shaughnessy and Jim Piecuch. Since launching in January 2013, more than 350 articles have been published at allthingsliberty.com, attracting 350,000 annual readers. Last year the Journal published its first annual volume, Journal of the American Revolution, Volume 1, which received glowing reviews by readers and media.
"Wow! I couldn't put this down," according to Armchair General Magazine's review of Journal of the American Revolution, Volume 1, written by reporter Sean Stevenson. "[I] read it in one five-hour sitting. Me. A guy who finds mistakes in Revolutionary War books that won the Pulitzer Prize. Who can tell you whether or not Ethan Allen got a smallpox inoculation. Who has memorized the opening lines of Paine's The Crisis. And I found more information in this one volume than I have in the last half-dozen books on the Revolutionary War that I read."
Due to the success of the volume, the editors decided to seek a strategic partner to make annual volumes a regular enterprise.
