Description: From Library Journal
This Guide is in a class all by itself. The third edition concentrates "on works published since 1961," when the second edition was published. Like its predecessors, it aims to list "the finest and most useful books and articles available in every field of historical scholarship," but this is a brand-new edition, not just an update. Entire subject areas no longer have their own separate sections (e.g., "History of Religion"), while others are new ("Science, Technology, Medicine"). Sections are generally much more detailed: U.S. history, for instance, moved from one 34-page section to six sections totaling 265 pages. The subject index provides excellent access to the material, and the annotations, averaging 30 words in length, are lucid. Though as in previous editions the Guide is often too general for the specialist, it is still invaluable for the nonspecialist. This superb new edition belongs in every library whose users want to identify the best historical scholarship.

Product Description:
This entirely new edition of a keystone reference is the place to start researching any topic in any field of history. Hundreds of historians from around the world have selected and provided commentary on the best and most useful works in their fields--almost 27,000 annotated citations--to provide unprecedented bibliographic guidance of extraordinary breadth, from prehistory to the twentieth century.

Presented in an accessible format, this completely new work has been ten years in planning and execution. The third edition is divided into sections arranged by chronology and national and regional history, with each section introduced by a brief historiographical essay. A key feature of the new edition is its expanded coverage of Africa, Asia, and North and South America.

Each bibliographic citation is identified by a unique reference number and includes all essential data, along with a brief critical annotation written by a specialist in the field. Also included are guides to the contributors of annotations and complete author and subject indexes.

An indispensable work for scholars, students, librarians, and general readers, the AHA Guide to Historical Literature is essential for anyone who is serious about history.
