Living Books about History is a collection of digital anthologies on current research topics. Each book contains an original essay by an editor, as well as a selection of texts and sources. Those contributions may be articles, images, videos, websites or recordings that already exist freely accessible on the internet.

The project is a new form of scientific publication that explores the possibilities offered by the digital medium. It updates the model of the anthology, in virtually bringing together scientific articles and sources of interest or unjustly forgotten. Readers and readers can contribute to the Living Books about History by suggesting further contributions.

All Living Books about History are available in their original language and in English.
