The American Historical Review (AHR) is the official publication of the American Historical Association (AHA). The AHA was founded in 1884 and chartered by Congress in 1889 to serve the interests of the entire discipline of history. Aligning with the AHA's mission, the AHR has been the journal of record for the historical profession in the United States since 1895-the only journal that brings together scholarship from every major field of historical study. The AHR is unparalleled in its efforts to choose articles that are new in content and interpretation and that make a contribution to historical knowledge. The journal also publishes approximately one thousand book reviews per year, surveying and reporting the most important contemporary historical scholarship in the discipline.
The February issue includes the 2013 Presidential Address, followed by articles on gender and soldiering in the Mexican-American War, humanitarian responses to the Armenian Genocide, interracial sex in twentieth-century Africa, and Spanish shipping in the Atlantic borderlands during the Second World War. There are also four featured reviews, along with our usual extensive book review section. "In Back Issues" draws attention to articles and features in the AHR from one hundred, seventy-five, and fifty years ago.
