Making offical history from all over the world accessible, this volume and its companion complement and bring Robin Higham's 1970 classic work, Official Histories up to date. Each chapter, written by staff of the relevant historical office, gives both historiographical background and information on the volumes published by that office. Covering Europe, Russia, Africa, the Middle East, and India, this volume provides a plethora of information, as does the companion volume on the Western Hemisphere and the Pacific Rim.
Buried in official history volumes is a lot of fine and useful history, and official volumes deserve to be perused. This book will make those histories available to scholars and graduate students and will be especially useful to those concerned with military, social, and diplomatic history as well as medicine.
