The Book Reviews section provides critical readings of the academic literature in energy history (books, articles, conferences and symposiums, thesis defenses, etc.). It is deliberately entrusted to a team of researchers early in their careers, thereby enabling them to actively follow the most recent publications. It is currently led by Guillaume Yon, a postdoctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin, and Sarah Claire, a doctoral student at EHESS in Paris.
The works reviewed most often echo the topic of the Special issue, although the section is broadly open to important productions regardless of subject. To suggest a review, we invite you to write us directly (D.Zapico(at)leeds.ac.uk).
