Index to Book Reviews in the Humanities, 1960-1990(Mugar Reference XZ1219 .F60)
Formerly a quarterly and later continued as an annual publication, this work indexed about 600 primarily English-language general and scholarly periodicals in the broad field of the “humanities,” except for archaeology, religion and theology. An asterisk before a citation indicates that earlier volumes also reviewed the title. This impressive publication was indexed by one individual and provides helpful access to publications not generally indexed elsewhere, including some non-English titles. The term “humanities” was originally defined to include history and some social science but beginning with the 1970 volume, the term was restricted to art, biography, personal narratives and memoirs, drama and dance, folklore, language, literature, music, philosophy, travel and adventure.
