Book Reviews in History: The Basics

The core history journal databases —

  • America: History & Life for reviews of books written about the Western Hemisphere;
  • Historical Abstracts for reviews of books written about the Eastern Hemisphere;
  • JSTOR for reviews of history books with an imprint more than a few years old;
  • and ProjectMUSE for reviews of books published in the last several years —

These databases cover, in addition to book reviews, scholarly journal articles, dissertations, editorials, and speeches, so be sure to limit your search to "Book Review" in both America: History & Life and Historical Abstracts, and to "Reviews" in JSTOR. You might try searching for the keywords "book" AND "review" in separate search boxes, or enter the phrase "review article" into a single search box.

The following are dedicated book review databases:
