Plus book reviews - all in all, lots of reading for Histomat readers while I am away at Marxism...But while I am here, I might as well point out that yesterday was a good day for the Guardian letters page:

Simon Jenkins (Comment, June 29) seems to have forgotten that Gordon Brown does have a greater knowledge of history than his predecessor, having gained both a first-class degree and a PhD in the subject. The problem is that the erstwhile disciple of James Maxton now takes his assessment of the history of British imperialism from Niall Ferguson rather than John Newsinger.

and here:

Your front page story on the London car bombs refers to them as "Iraqi style". Actually I don't think this is any kind of Iraqi tradition. It dates precisely from certain events in spring 2003.
