Congratulations to Catherine Bishop and Jennifer Aston (editors) for the publication of Female Entrepreneurs in the Long Nineteenth Century (Palgrave Macmillan, 2020). This is the first book to consider nineteenth-century businesswomen from a global perspective, moving beyond European and trans-Atlantic frameworks to include many other corners of the world, and features chapters from current and former AHA members.
Congratulations to Robert Hadler for the publication of Dark Secrets: The True Story of Murder in HMAS Australia (Wilkinson Publishing, 2020). This book explores the murder of a RAN sailor onboard HMAS Australia during the Second World War. Historical scholarship has often focussed upon how this murder prompted major legal and political changes in Australia. This book reveals new details about the victim and the fate of those convicted for his murder.
