How To Write History That People Want To Read

a73de67d-683b-4eea-a46a-d29349d34189

Whatever person or subject interests you, writing the history can be a fascinating project to tackle, and this new how-to book shows you just how to go about it. An important part of the book deals with the research you will need to undertake, showing you how to locate and access relevant archives, libraries and other sources.

But then it shows you how to structure and write your book to make it appeal to the widest audience: how to shape your chapter openings; how to craft your endings; how to handle quotes (and to do so without infringing copyright). All these, and many more, aspects of the creative challenge that history writing can present are tackled in detail.
