Library Journal Review

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.-Peter Dollard, Alma Coll. Lib., Mich. (c) Copyright 2010.

CHOICE Review

Norton and Gerardi, working with more than 400 contributors, have produced a monumental work of historical bibliography. It is composed of 26,926 annotated entries in 48 sections that cite books, articles, and chapters in books primarily in English published from 1961, the date of the last edition, through 1992. The 1st edition appeared in 1931. More than a decade in the making, this project, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities with support from the Rockefeller, Mellon, and Luce foundations, sets out to identify "the finest and most useful books and articles in every field of historical scholarship" and "combines qualitative selectivity, inclusive breadth, and intellectual integration." The editorial board identified three user needs that governed the selection of items: "the need for reliable syntheses and reference works that provided entry into a historical field, the need to know the most highly esteemed works that set the standard of excellence ... and the need to explore major alternative interpretations represented in current scholarly debate." Although most sections relate to geographical areas, some are subject-oriented (e.g., "Science, Technology, and Medicine," "International Relations"), still others relate to such specialized topics as "Theory and Practice in Historical Study" or "Native Peoples in the Americas." Each section begins with an introductory essay followed by a guide to the arrangement of that section. Within a section, reference works and general studies precede entries arranged to suit the materials in that field. Citation to a given work generally appears only once, and the most recent American edition is preferred. In addition to standard bibliographical information, entries include series titles associated with scholarly institutes, societies, and associations, and ISBN or ISSN. Annotations average 30 words and are signed. Some sections have see also references at the end. Following the last section is a list of journals grouped by section name. The second volume concludes with a 118-page author index and an extremely detailed, useful, and accurate subject index of nearly 300 pages. The set is worth much more than its price and deserves to be in all but the smallest libraries. J. D. Haskell Jr.; College of William and Mary
