2020 Contingent Magazine BooklistHistorians in the News
For tenure-track scholars in history, publishing a book is one of the key parts of earning tenure.1 But many contingent scholars publish books as well, especially those on the job market, where search committees want to see candidates who are engaged and “productive.”2
As few historians make any significant money on their writing, just knowing that people have read their books can mean a lot to an author. Here are some books released in 2020 by historians working off the tenure track that you might consider as you do your end-of-the-year shopping.
