Ok, a straight forward straw poll for some research I am currently doing. In essence, do you think that there is a need for an academic series on air power and aviation history that is produced by a publisher who markets books at a reasonable and accessible price? I know some people can be put off by the word academic, but what I am referring to here is high-quality and well-researched works published in a series that adheres to consistent standards.
In my mind such a series would publish works of original historical research in the area of air power and aviation studies as well as studies from related fields such as law, politics, ethics, international relations, archaeology, and museology. The works would cover all aspects of air power and aviation in the 20th and 21st centuries. Books published would be at aimed at scholars, postgraduate and upper-level students, whilst still being accessible enough to appeal to a wider audience of educated lay readers.
Any feedback and comments would be much appreciated.
