About the series
IHR Research Guides are written to help early career historians approach new areas of research and offer clear and accessible starting points when learning how to undertake research.
Volumes survey the current research in the chosen subject, outline relevant methodological issues, and look at available primary sources in different media and formats. Aimed principally at final-year undergraduates and first year PhD students, IHR Research Guides also include practical case studies and examples to guide research.
The Research Guides are jointly published by the IHR and Manchester University Press. Forthcoming titles include an introduction to digital history, written by members of the Institute's digital research group.
