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 contributor 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.
