Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The History Highway provides a roadmap to the burgeoning number of history sites that have sprung up along the information superhighway. Presented in a straight-forward, non-technical language, this handy reference begins with a brief, general introduction to the Internet and an explanation of the software and hardware needed to gain access to it. The balance of the book contains an extensive listing and description of individual sites, organized and presented within familiar historical categories: by period (ancient, medieval, etc.), by geographical region (Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, etc.), and by sub-field (history of science and technology, military history, religious history, etc.). The History Highway also includes separate sections listing site sources for maps, electronic texts, discussion groups, newsgroups, journals, organizations, and library/archives, plus an annotated list of suggested further readings and comprehensive glossary of terms.<P>Each site entry contains its title, Internet address and a brief description of what can be found at the site. The authors have made a careful effort to list sites (well over 1000) that are of the highest quality and provide the most useful information. Meticulously indexed, the book is a valuable tool for researchers, history instructors, students and history buffs. As an added benefit, The History Highway authors maintain their own Internet site for updating and additions.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 229-233) and index.
