An indispensable book for students of American History, this distinguished volume by eminent members of the Harvard faculty is the initial publication of the Belknap Press of Harvard University Press. Lineal descendant of the Guide to American History by Channing, Hart, and Turner, published in 1912 and long out of print though much in demand, this new book will prove of incalculable value to all interested in its field. Sixty-six sections on the writing and studying of American History are followed by over 200 bibliographies arranged chronologically by topics which refer the reader to principal sources of information on questions of importance in all phases of American History. Specific references to books and articles apply to general works readily available as well as to pertinent monographs and scholarly publications. There is a very full index.
