Advisory Board: Kevin Boyle, Ross Dunn, Leon Fink, Kimberly Ibach, Alfred W. McCoy, David J. Staley, Maggie Tran, Sam Wineburg, and Leslie Alexander
The Harvey Goldberg Series gives college and secondary history instructors a deeper understanding of the past as well as the tools to help them teach it creatively and effectively. Each volume focuses on a specific historical topic and offers a wealth of content and resources, providing concrete examples of how teachers can approach the subject in the classroom.
Named for Harvey Goldberg, a professor renowned for his history teaching at Oberlin College, Ohio State University, and the University of Wisconsin from the 1960s to the 1980s, the series reflects Goldberg’s commitment to helping students think critically about the past with the goal of creating a better future.
If you have ideas for a volume, or would like to be considered as an editor for a volume in the series, please contact UW Press Editor in Chief Nathan MacBrien.

Understanding and Teaching the Modern Middle East
“This book is unique in its breadth and scope. There is no comparable volume that offers guidance on teaching the Middle East at the university or high school level. Chapters include a diverse range of voices, and the gender balance among the contributors is commendable and significant, placing it at the cutting edge of academic pedagogy.”
Understanding and Teaching the Holocaust
“Hilton and Patt's wide-ranging volume combines authoritative surveys of key aspects of the Holocaust—from antisemitism to postwar justice—with practical guides to using survivor testimonies, photographs, museums, and more with students. This book will help anyone involved in teaching about a subject that remains as challenging as it is urgent.”
