For more than 75 years the American Historical Association’s Guide to Historical Literature provided snapshots of the best work in the discipline. The first edition was published in 1931, with revised editions published in 1961 and 1995. Each volume offers a selective “inventory of the best historical literature” in all fields, topics, and methods, and was carefully crafted by large teams of bibliographers and historians. For anyone seeking a better understanding of the “state-of-the-art” in history, this is the best place to start.
