EMEMH Titles

Here is the revised list of EMEMH publications – apologies for the cramped space, but it seems to be a function of the template I selected.

See here for initial methodology, and click on the Publishing tag for discussion. At the end of this long table is discussion of miscellaneous notes on the variables themselves.

Due to display size constraints, I have more variables than those displayed in the table here and also had to truncate some of the info. If you want the data to play around with, contact me.

Let me know of any corrections or additions.

Pgs: number of pages (from Amazon).
$: price of the book in (December) 2011 U.S. dollars according to Amazon.
PB?: Is the book available in paperback? 0 = yes, 1 = no.
Pop/Ac: Is the work an academic work, a popular work, or a popular work put out by an academic press.
#YrStd: Number of years covered in the book, with a minimum of 10 years (even for case studies).
War: War title covers. Sometime I’ll post up my abbreviations, but you can probably figure them out for yourself!
Country: What country title covers. If more than one, “Europe.”
Subject: The main subject matter – is it fundamentally a book about a war? a battle? War and Society?…

Some general notes about the book list and its variables:

  1. I list 182 titles, but I have undoubtedly underestimated the number of popular works on EMEMH; you can tell my interest in the late 17C-early 18C, for example, by the number of popular titles on Marlborough and Vauban. Also, I did not include many biographies of people like Cromwell unless the author primarily focused on their military activities. See the earlier list for the methodology on the selection of titles. Let me know in the comments of any relevant titles that I missed.
  2. Publishers change names and disappear, rights to their books are purchased by other presses and republished, some books go out of print and then get republished as a paperback, and used copies tend to circulate online for quite some time unless a press has a print on-demand. The publishers and years listed are not necessarily that of the original edition.
  3. The prices are drawn from Amazon’s prices (U.S.) in the second week of December 2011. I relied on Amazon because it was easiest to look up, and long gone are the days when publishers would print the price of the book right on the back cover. With more research one could find the more useful original list price at the time of publication (instead of 2011 U.S. dollars) by looking at old publisher catalogs, old copies of Books in Print, reviews in journals, etc. But this is an informal exercise, so I’ll leave it to the real historians of the book if they’re interested in that. With the 2011 prices you can get a sense, nonetheless, of how much original list prices have been rising over the years.
  4. I used Amazon’s publisher list price, not any discounted price they might offer.
  5. I distinguished the price for hardcover vs. paperback books. For space considerations, here I only show the $ column, which indicates the cheapest list price for the book: if the book was available in paper, I used that price, otherwise the hardcover price is used. These may change if publishers decide to offer paperback to titles with decent sales. It is also possible that books from the past few years might eventually be published in paper at some point in the future, but the hardcover sales haven’t accumulated yet for a press to make that judgment. The same goes for the PB? field.
  6. In the price column I only included books that were still sold by the press, i.e. I excluded the prices of used books. In some cases, this means that a few works don’t have any price info, since they are apparently out of print in hardcover and not available in paperback (10 titles of the 177, or 5%).
  7. Using 2011 dollars makes it difficult to compare original list prices for books published years apart. However, it appears that the original list price tends to be “sticky,” and doesn’t increase as much as the list price of new publications. Regardless, the prices of some books continuously in print can change over the years, e.g. I’m pretty sure my own book has increased in price $20 or more since it first came out four years ago.
  8. It’s impossible to tell to what extent any subventions were paid by the authors in order to decrease the list price of their book. The market for such books requires different data, that would be much more difficult to collect, such as sales.
  9. I created the other variables based on my impressions and/or knowledge of the content: the press as an academic vs. popular publisher, the time period the book covers (# years) either from info in the title or the subject, the geographical scope of the work…
  10. For the number (#) of years covered by the book, I used the following rough methodology: 1) subtract the year range if it existed in the title; 2) assign it an even 100 years if the title used is a century; 3) use the length of a war if that is in the title, 4) use the adult life span of the subject if the work is a biography. Otherwise I ballparked it. If any of the resulting numbers were less than ten years, I rounded them up to ten, because even with a case study of a specific battle or siege that only lasts a few days, the author will usually provide background on the war, the fortifications, the commander, etc. I recognize that many works use generic start and end dates (1648, 1815…), and that individual authors may expand their title dates beyond their real focus, while others cover far more than the years mentioned in the title. And some authors may even cover only a few discrete episodes within a much longer time frame. But more precision than my above method requires a lot more time and patience than I have for this project.
  11. The Popular/Academic/Academic Popular distinction is an admittedly artificial and somewhat subjective one. Academic publishers presumably want to find popular books so their sales can subsidize specialized literature, so books published by academic presses that were intended for a broader audience were given the hybrid of Academic/Popular. Also, a non-academic reader interested in a particular topic will undoubtedly get academic books on the subject if they are available. And of course academics may also cite popular books if they are relevant to their subject.
  12. I’m not sure how much the overall academic publishing market has changed due to digital editions and online piracy of books, a global used-book market, the collapse of university funding for their presses, the collapse of library acquisition budgets, and other factors. But presumably a lot.
  13. The number of pages also came from Amazon – these can often vary by 10 or more, not to mention whether you cound the index, etc.
  14. The Country field is based on modern broad boundaries, and is meant to indicate current interest in particular parts of Europe. It is also expansive, in that I aggregated anything in the British isles into Britain, even if a work was focused only on Scotland, or Ireland. If the book discussed more than one country, I assigned it the Country that it focused the most on; if it gave substantial and equal coverage to more than one country, I assigned it “Europe.” A book promising a discussion of all of Europe was awarded “Europe”, although in most cases any one author will have a more limited geographical focus. (FWIW, I have more than a dozen keyword categories in my bibliographic database distinguishing all of these different types of keywords, but I didn’t want to reproduce them all here.)
  15. Subject: This is most subjective categorization of them all. I chose a single word to categorize each book. In many cases, several categories might have applied to a single work, but I chose the one which best represented the intended audience most likely to read the book. As an example, I classified a book on the Scots in the 30YW under the “Country” (i.e. on Scottish military history) category, rather than the “War” category, because in my judgment those interested in the Scottish military experience (regardless of which war) will be more likely to read it than someone interested in one of the 30YW’s other myriad aspects. I also included a book in the Country category if the focus of the work was on a region of Europe, e.g. the Mediterranean. I also included works that studied a group of people under the “Biography” category. The “War & Society” category is a catch-all category, including works on military administration, war and politics, war and its economic connections, war and its social impact, war and art…
