- Publisher's Summary
- The new edition of this uniquely comprehensive reference work is the place for anyone to start researching any topic from the field of history. Hundreds of historians from around the world have selected and annotated the best works in their fields - over 26,000 annotated citations - to provide unprecedented bibliographic guidance of unprecedented breadth, from the pre-history to the recent history of the United States. Presented in an easily readable format, these two volumes are a completely new work, designed to replace the classic but now outdated editions of 1931 and 1961. Ten years in planning and execution, the new edition is divided into sections arranged by chronology and national/regional history, each section introduced by a brief historiographical essay. 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, title, and subject indexes. Features of the new edition:* Expanded coverage of Africa, Asia, and North and South America.
