The Journal of Contemporary History is an international forum for the analysis of twentieth century history. Now over forty years old, the journal has long been established as essential reading for all scholars in contemporary European and international history.

The Journal of Contemporary History publishes articles covering a broad range of historical approaches including social, economic, political, diplomatic, intellectual and cultural. It is noted both for its intellectual rigour and the accessible style of its contributions.

The Journal of Contemporary History is pleased to announce that beginning in 2005 it will award two new annual prizes in honour of its distinguished founding co-editors George L. Mosse and Walter Laqueur.

The George L. Mosse Prize
for the best article published in the Journal of Contemporary History each calendar year by a previously unpublished author - $2,000

The Walter Laqueur Prize
for the best article published in the Journal of Contemporary History each calendar year - $2,500

Winners will be selected by the Editorial Board.

JCH CONFERENCE GRANTS

The Editors have decided to use some of the journal's accumulated balances to fund conferences in any field of contemporary history as defined in the Journal of Contemporary History, that is, history within the memory of some persons now living. Other than this, there is no restriction of field, area or period. Applications should be sent to the Assistant Editor (office@jch.org.uk). They should include a full draft programme and detailed estimates of expenditure. Up to £4000 sterling will be awarded to fund each conference. Normally only one conference will be funded each year. Successful applicants must agree to offer the papers to the Journal of Contemporary History for publication in a special issue of the journal; only if the papers are rejected by the Editors may the organizers offer them for publication elsewhere. Applications should be received at least 6 months before the proposed conference is to start.

INDIVIDUAL BOOK REVIEWS

From 2008 JCH will include reviews of individual books, in addition to review articles covering a range of books within the compass of a single critical essay. The Editors have appointed Dr Kristina Spohr Readman, of the London School of Economics and Political Science, and Dr Jim Bjork, of King's College London as Joint Review Editors. They will be commissioning individual reviews as well as review articles.
