In the volume the main outcomes of EHISTO are summarized. After a short report on the EHISTO project and its outcomes 7 articles offer interdisciplinary approaches for research on popular history magazines. Several different sciences are represented, such as media psychology, public history, media studies, cultural studies and narratology. The third part of the book introduces history magazines as an international phenomenon. Among contributions summarizing the market situation and main topics of respective magazines in the countries involved, there are also analyses of the strategies that history magazines use to cover common topics. Finally, two empirical studies investigate on how popular history magazines are received by customers and used in schools.
