Manchester Papers in Economic and Social History began life in 1990 under the editorship of Professor Peter Gatrell to disseminate research by Manchester economic and social historians. The editorship was taken over in 1997 by Professor Ruggero Ranieri who put the journal online. The series was re-launched in 2007 by Dr Peter Kirby with a remit to publish more widely in the fields of social, cultural and economic history.
