About Book Reviews

Book reviews can help with your research, placing a book within a scholarly discourse, showing contemporary reaction to a work, and providing a convenient synopsis.  The number of reviews published, their authors, and where they appear will tell you a lot about the life of a book, its importance to a subject, and the reactions to its publication.
