Submitting Books for HSM Publications

HSM regularly highlights new Michigan history books in its three publications. The academic journal The Michigan Historical Review features reviews written by experts in the field, while magazines Michigan History and Chronicle list summaries of recent historical books. 

If you would like your book considered for inclusion in one or more of our publications, please send two copies to Book Review Editor, Historical Society of Michigan, 7435 Westshire Drive, Lansing, MI 48917.
