For a limited time, enjoy free access to German History’s Early Modern Virtual Special Issue.

In this, the first of an occasional series of virtual Special Issues, German History foregrounds recent work on early-modern history. The journal is committed to sustaining a dialogue across periods and across fields, with contents that will appeal to readerships far beyond those specialized in their immediate subject matter.

For this virtual Special Issue, the current editors have therefore selected early-modern pieces published in German History during the past ten years that are likely to appeal to a wide audience. This collection reflects recent interest in transnationalism and global history, and covers a wide range of subjects.

To read the Virtual Issue, please visit our website: <>. The collection is free from now until 30 November 2013.
