Shaped by some of the longest-running book series on the market, with new series on emerging topics constantly in development, our carefully curated history list makes for a broad and diverse eBook collection. Spanning ancient to contemporary times, the collection is unique in its breadth and depth, providing unrivalled coverage with a truly global outlook. In recent years we have made a concerted effort to expand beyond its traditional foci of Europe and North America to other parts of the world, such as Asia and Latin America.

Global and transnational history, imperial and post-colonial history, the history of science and technology, and the history of gender and sexuality are the long-time stalwarts of the collection. Yet it also includes many smaller yet burgeoning (and often interdisciplinary) sub-disciplines at the forefront of historical research, such as the history of experience and environmental history. The collection now also includes our growing selection of archaeological titles. Covering a wide range of time periods, the archaeology list is comprehensive in scope, with highlights including our works in historical archaeology, material culture, and interdisciplinary publications that intersect with archaeology. It is from this list that our renowned compendium, the Encyclopedia of Global Archaeology, was born. Attracting considerable interest are our bioarchaeology titles and our continuously expanding heritage list.

With works from leading experts and rising stars alike, the collection offers a variety of titles, from highly-focused research monographs and edited collections under both the Palgrave and Springer imprints, as well as short-form publications and reference works, all tailored to the needs of academics, researchers and students. With a growing number of titles on historiography and methodology, it provides the tools needed to continue to interrogate and investigate the world in which we live, and how this has changed over time.
