Finding Book Reviews

Reading book reviews can help you decide whether or not a particular book contains information that will assist you in learing more about your research topic.  A book review also can be an effective resource for evaluating a particular book and determining how scholars and other reviewers received the work.  In scholarly History Journals, a book review will often place the author's work in context and describe how the monograph contributes to existing historical literature and/or historiographical debates.


You can locate reviews of History Books by searching the following databases and resources. You will often need to limit your search to book reviews within each search screen to make certain you only retrieve book reviews in your search results.
