Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Initially published in 1996 and revised in 2000, this work has again been updated, which is essential to keeping it useful and relevant. The editors attempt to survey the breadth and depth of history as a subject within the far-reaching and often confusing realm of the Internet an aim they achieve admirably. Many categories of history are covered, including specific geographies and time periods, the history of computers, genealogy, and urban history. There are also useful sections on newsgroups, discussion lists, libraries, and special collections. The entries themselves provide a description of what information a reader can find on the site and some sense of the authority of the site or its authors. The great thing about a work like this is that you know a site included here can be worthwhile. The inclusion of an index is important because some of the topics overlap. For instance, one web site is covered in two separate sections, by two different contributors, and therefore with slightly different levels of detail. The serious scholar, the history buff, and anyone with a computer and a love of the subject should have this book along with a heavy-duty book weight to hold it open while surfing. Manya S. Chylinski, Ernst & Young Ctr. for Business Knowledge, Boston Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
