Thanks to the History Channel

HNN would like to thank the History channel for its long support of HNN through the years. It is an honor to be associated with History!

We would also like to thank historian David H. Stam, who provided HNN with a generous donation through the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation.



"I find the History News Network indispensable for keeping up with new publications and new interpretations, and keeping track of debates over history, in both its academic and public forms, throughout the world."


"The History News Network is one of the strongest reasons to cheer for the rise of the World Wide Web as a source of scholarly news and information. Thanks to Rick Shenkman's steadfast openness, fairness, and sheer energy, HNN has become one of those rare sites where the reports can rise well above professorial gossip and trash talk, and where all sides of an argument can get a hearing, I read it, I write for it, and I prize it."


"As its wide coverage and its impressive numbers of hits-per-week indicate, HNN has become the most important -- and reliable -- source for fresh historical interpretation and, of special note, for the understanding of current events placed, often provocatively, in their historical contexts."

Why Donate to HNN
