Zhihui Zou



Zhihui Zou Zhihui is World History Encyclopedia's book review editor. He has previously written book reviews for a variety of history academic journals, such as Western Historical Quarterly, New England Journal of History, and others.


History first caught my attention in third grade, when I, like many people, read about the wars and battles in the past. As years went by, I began to focus my research on two topics: American history and media history.

Currently, I research the nineteenth-century American West, especially Californian History. I'm affiliated with Duke University.

Because I also write and have published fiction, history to me is something more than an academic subject. It is a way of storytelling and engagement with the people around us.
