Bonus points and a shout out if you can tell me about this image.

Greetings all!

I am currently putting the final touches on the October 2014 issue of The Americanist Independent. For those of you who have yet to subscribe, you have been missing quite a bit. My idea behind the journal and website is to join the very best aspects of historical publishing with the ease and connectivity of blogging and social media. So far the project has been a tremendous success – so why not be a part of it?

So in addition to the community forum, the video component, and the much celebrated Student Portal, here’s what you’ve been missing – below is a comprehensive table of contents for the first four issues. Looks pretty damn good, right? And all for $4.97 a month, which is less than a burger and fries (and way better for you).

And just to prove that I am a generous fellow, click HERE and you can have a week’s full access gratis! Enjoy with my compliments.
