All “Inconvenient History” Back Issues Now Available

CODOH Board of Trustees decided earlier this year to put all back issues of CODOH’s flagship publication, the revisionist quarterly journal Inconvenient History, back into print as eBook and paperback editions, meaning Volumes 1 through 15 (the years 2009 through 2023).

Inconvenient History, Volumes 1-15

I started working on that project on April 11, and wrapped it up on June 22. That’s roughly ten weeks for 15 volumes, which have altogether almost 7,600 pages. That’s an average of just over 500 pages per volume, although each volume has some 16 pages of front matters and back matters (book ads) that don’t really count, so strictly speaking, there’s a total of some 7,100 pages of text in the entire set. That amounts to one 500-page paperback book released on average every five days during that ten-week period. Of course, I did not have to reinvent these 15 inconvenient wheels. Most of the text was already there. It merely had to be fetched, reformatted, illustrated, and prepared for print production.

However, the further I progressed toward the later years, the more work it became per volume, slowing me down a little more with each subsequent volume. The reason is that Inconvenient History had been neglected increasingly as time passed, so contributions were at times in need of revision; some were not even in English but had been posted in Italian or French; others had been forgotten and sat on my hard drive in the proper issue’s folder, but never made it online. Editorials had been abandoned altogether. It’s all my fault, so I have only myself to blame.

But now, after ten weeks of incessant work, the deed is finally done. All 15 volumes have been finished and are now available as a bundle at a discounted price, both as eBooks (PDF) and as paperbacks. If you don’t have a copy yet, please consider getting one here.  Below, you find the collective data for all 15 volumes:
