A Guide to Information Sources and Services on the Civil War, 1984-1991.
Rother, Jeffrey A.
This research paper is both an annotated bibliography of books and dissertations on the Civil War that were published between 1984-1991, and an annotated guide to currently-available periodicals, online databases, and organizations. The bibliography and guide are aimed primarily at historians and Civil War buffs. Because of the large number of books on the Civil War being published, only the military history of the War and topics directly related to military history are covered. The 12 reference works that are annotated include bibliographies, dictionaries, encyclopedias, atlases, and biographical sketches. The 40 topical studies covered focus on campaigns, battles, and the military life. Book annotations are both descriptive and evaluative. The bibliography also includes 10 dissertations on the military history of the war. Seven periodicals which serve Civil War historians and buffs are briefly described, and six online bibliographic databases are given descriptive annotations. The guide concludes with descriptions of 10 organizations that sponsor or encourage research, educational, or historical activities relating to the Civil War. The paper includes an author and title index of annotated materials. (Contains 21 references.) (Author/KRN)
