Hundreds of the best reference books pertaining to United States history are identified and described in United States History: A Selective Guide To Information Sources. Designed for a wide spectrum of users (practicing historians, scholars, graduate and undergraduate students, librarians, the general public), United States History offers selective but thorough coverage of both bibliographic and information materials on the subjects. Selections for inclusion were made on the basis of favorable reviews and first-hand knowledge with both standard tools and new reference materials included. Printed reference books, online databases, and CD-ROM titles, as well as microfilm are covered. To ensure historical perspective, 1975 (the end of the Vietnam period) was used as the cutoff in terms of content. Entries provide all standard bibliographic information and full descriptive and sometimes evaluative annotations. Scope notes provide valuable expository information and suggested search strategies in such areas as automation, government documents, and genealogy. Arranged topically and with a social science perspective that does not exclude traditional materials, United States History emphasizes social history in its treatment of multicultural and gender influences, and in its recognition of various societal institutions and issues. It is the first guide of its kind to consider the gay influence and treat genealogy seriously. -- Midwest Book Review
