5.0 out of 5 stars Great magazine at a great price April 16, 2008
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I too recently subscribed to BBC History Magazine through Amazon and had no problems. It's a colorful magazine full of interesting and lively articles and stimulating ideas. Indirectly, I also see BBC History Magazine as a kind of travel magazine. There are lots of historical places I want to check out after reading a few issues. Highly recommended!

I really enjoy this magazine, so much so that I asked for it as a gift for Christmas. But, as of ten months later I have not recieved any of the magazines. If you want a subscription for BBC History my suggestion is to contact the magazine directly, especially if you live in the U.S. I have contacted the magazine department at Amazon and have not received any real response. This was supposed to be a gift subscription. It was not worth the money.

In the era of Nexus-Kindle-iPad, I'm down to one print magazine subscription: BBC History Magazine. It's a beautiful magazine that I read cover-to-cover as soon as it arrives in the mail. It's kind of expensive (about $7 a copy) but well worth it for the amateur historian looking to get exposure to lots of history topics.

One thing to make clear up front is that it is very English-focused. Not British-focused, or Europe-focused, or world-focused. I'm quite interested in English history, so that works very well for me, but if you're not really into English history, despite the mag's efforts to cover a broad range of world topics, it's probably not going to be of great interest.

The other criticism I have is that it's a bit ... fluffy. Even the feature articles are very short; nothing is ever covered in sufficient depth for a true history enthusiast. A recent article on women in Anglo-Saxon times barely scratched the surface of the topic, and defaulted to inane politically-correct themes instead of really digging in to that fascinating subject. The mag's coverage of the Richard III skeleton discovery and its implications was brief and feeble. On the other hand, the brief articles do at least pique your interest and give you things to go read more about and research on the web. And maybe lack of depth is an unfair criticism of a monthly magazine; it is, after all, not a quarterly academic journal. The writing is good, and there are lots of cool pictures and graphics to keep things interesting.

Despite those criticisms, as noted above, it's actually the only magazine to which I subscribe, and each month I wait for it to get here so I can dig in. I'll give it the five stars, although I wish they would have one or two major articles each month that got double or triple the word-count currently given to the feature stories.

I do not know of a better magazine for world wide history articles. Even its small paragraphs are packed with important items. I look forward to receiving it each month.

5.0 out of 5 stars Monthly Christmas Present October 23, 2012
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I've subscribed to BBC History for several years now and I must say that it's one of my favorite magazines ever. It's got a delightful mix of "light" archaeology and history (Like the monthly calendar feature) and "heavy," serious articles. Some months, I read it straight from cover to cover on the day it arrives and other months I pick and choose for the whole month, eventually reading everything. It's a perfect magazine for either the steamroller or the "browser" approach. I also enjoy the numerous book reviews offered-- It ensures that I get to hear about British history books that might otherwise slip my notice in the U.S. The United States has no magazine to compare about its history, which is a true loss. I'm just glad that I can get this great magazine for my United Kingdom (and lots of other countries) history fix!

5.0 out of 5 stars BBC History Magazine December 26, 2012
By eva b.
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I've subscribed to this magazine for about 3 years after purchasing in on newstands. Everything stops when it arrives in the mail and it is the only magazine that I read cover to cover, even taking a stab at the puzzles and quizzes,though they are frequently too "inside baseball" (cricket?)for me. The issues do usually arrive late in the month, but it was the same on the newstand. And it's History, after all.

5.0 out of 5 stars BBC History has wealth of information October 24, 2013
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal|Verified Purchase
I love BBC History magazine. It has so much information and the articles are very interesting. Most of the magazine, of course, focuses on Great Britain and Europe, but there are often articles related to US History. I would definitely recommend it.
