New Journal: History of Retailing and Consumption

Although we don't usually highlight materials not freely available, a new journal in the field certainly merits a mention. Volume 1, no. 1 of the History of Retailing and Consumption is now available in print and online. The editors are Vicki Howard of Hartwick College and Jon Stobart of Manchester Metropolitan University. In their introduction, which is accessible to all, the editors write,

The purpose of the journal is to provide a central place for publication and reference for those interested in all aspects of the history of retailing and consumption. . . . We envision the journal as a place where different disciplinary perspectives and methodological approaches are brought together and traditional boundaries are crossed. 
The contents of the first issue, with abstracts of each article, are available on the journal's website.
