About the author:
The Concord Review, Inc., was founded as a nonprofit corporation in Massachusetts in March 1987 to recognize and to publish exemplary history essays by high school students in the English-speaking world.

More than 1,000 history research papers (average 6,000 words, with endnotes and bibliography) have been published from secondary student authors in forty-six states and thirty-eight other countries.

The Concord Review remains the only quarterly journal in the world to publish the academic work of secondary students.

Many of our authors have sent reprints of their papers with their college application materials, and they have gone on to Brown (25), Chicago (20), Columbia (21), Cornell (16), Dartmouth (20), Harvard (120), Oxford (13), Pennsylvania (23), Princeton (63), Stanford (38), Yale (98), and a number of other fine institutions, including Amherst, Berkeley, Bryn Mawr, Caltech, Cambridge, Chicago, McGill, Middlebury, MIT, Reed, Smith, Trinity, Tufts, Virginia, Wellesley, Wesleyan, and Williams.

We have sent such exemplary history essays to subscribers (students, teachers and librarians) in forty-two states and thirty-eight other countries (Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Cyprus, England, France, Greece, Holland, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Madagascar, Malaysia, Mexico, Nepal, New Guinea, New Zealand, Paraguay, Philippines, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Turkey, Venezuela and Wales). Schools in Bangkok, California, Connecticut, Georgia, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Singapore, Texas, Vermont and Virginia have had class sets of the Review, and teachers are using these essays as examples of good historical writing. One girls' school in Monterey, California has had 80 subscriptions for their history students, Singapore American School now has 125 subscriptions, and Bangkok Patana School in Thailand has had a class set for their students of history.

Special Emerson Prize Issue

Authored by Will Fitzhugh

This is a special issue of Emerson Prize-winning history research papers on various topics by secondary students published over several years in The Concord Review. They include essays on Anne Hutchinson, The Great Awakening, Irish Nationalism, and Socialist Realism, among many others. The authors attended Harvard, Dartmouth, MIT, Princeton, Stanford, Yale and other fine universities. Several graduated summa cum laude, and one was a Rhodes Scholar. They came from Colorado, Connecticut, Hong Kong, Japan, Maryland, Massachusetts, Ohio, Ontario, and Singapore. These are among the best history papers we have ever published. Of course, your purchase from Amazon will help us to keep offering this unique opportunity to diligent high school students of history, but I also really hope you like the papers, and I would love to hear from you if you do.
