The Gutenberg-e prizewinning books represent the most distinguished and innovative scholarship delivered with creative and thoughtful use of digital technology. These books have undergone a rigorous academic review process by distinguished historians brought together by the American Historical Association. The books represent a wide range of subjects including: Africa, colonial Latin America, South Asia, Europe before 1800, military history, and history of foreign relations. While these digital monographs can be printed out and read in the traditional way, the electronic versions offer elements that cannot be conveyed in print (e.g., extensive documentation, hyperlinks to supplementary literature, images, music, video, and links to related Web sites). New monographs are added to the collection each year. (Updated annually)
