Finding Book Reviews: Start Here

Why Use Book Reviews?

Book reviews can save you time—they provide short critiques and responses to a book's thesis, analysis, and structure. They can also illuminate previous scholarship and highlight current debates in the field.

Books (whether printed or online) are still a crucial component of scholarly discourse, especially in the humanities and social sciences.

Sometimes it is very simple to find a book review. At other times, it can be very difficult. Ask a librarian for assistance if you do not have success fairly quickly.
