In honor of the annual conference of the Australian Historical Association, which is being held this week in Canberra, we have removed the paywall from the Pacific Historical Review‘s recent special issue, ‘‘Protection: Global Genealogies, Local Practices.’’ The issue, edited by Christina Twomey of Monash University and Katherine Ellinghaus of the University of Melbourne, offers readers a view into new research in Australian and transnational histories of varied colonial ‘‘protection’’ and ‘‘humanitarian’’ regimes. The articles explore themes in comparative colonial history, empire, Native and immigrant agency, as well as transnational histories relating to indigenous peoples, immigrants, women, and the role of the state as ‘‘protector’’ across empires. PHR is happy to provide a forum for the best new innovative work in history and is pleased to be able to make this special issue available for free for a limited time. #OzHA2018  #ASAA2018
