American Historical Association 2009


Last weekend we attended the conference for the American Historical Association being held here in New York City. This is one of our favorite meetings as it always draws a good crowd. And we love history professors because they always know what they are looking for. We were glad to have many fabulous new and backlist books to show.

New books such as Mrs. Lincoln: A Life, and Waking Giant caught the eye of many. There was also great anticipation for Jackson Lears' forthcoming book Rebirth of a Nation due out in June. Books that continue to be popular for course use among history professors are Ordinary Men by Christopher Browning, Alexis de Tocqueville's Democracy in America, and A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn.

Thanks again to the AHA and all who stopped by the booth, we look forward to seeing you all again next year in sunny San Diego.
