"A study that should appeal to librarians and historians alike." —CHOICE
"This pioneering work charts the role scholarly historical periodicals have played, and are still playing, in the communication system of professional historians. . . .Full of facts presented in a lively fashion, very readable, well written, beautifully produced and with ample references, a lengthy bibliography, and a good index." —Library Association Record
"This is a pioneering study and represents a major undertaking. . . . Stieg succeeds in making intelligible the diffuse and highly diversified nature of the historical periodical. At minimum, this title should be required reading of all history graduate students in methodology courses. Many senior historians would also benefit from a review of its contents. . . . Information and library science students specializing in scholarly communication should digest the entire study." —Journal of Education for Library and Information Science
