Why don’t we have a bigger history section in magazines?

Check out the extraordinary display of history magazines at a news and magazine retailer I visited this week in Copenhagen. Their extensive range of history related titles is extraordinary. We would be lucky to have 10% of these titles. While I get that history would be a more popular category in Europe than Australia, the extent to their range compared to ours is surprising.

    A good question.

    Could it be that wrong mags are available through GG. I receive the European stuff (BBC, National Geographic etc) which do not sell. Why should they, the articles are shallow and repeatedly trot out the usual world events.

    A quick google reveals there appears to be some excellent Australian history publications I don’t recall ever seeing.

    Anybody stocking Australia Times, Inside History?
