Reviews in History, IHR Digital's online journal, publishes its 1,000th review today - its special issue can be found at http://www.history.ac.uk/reviews/.
Launched in 1996, Reviews covers books and digital resources across every area of historical interest, with all reviews being undertaken by leading experts in the field. It has always been noted for its broad scope, chronologically, geographically and thematically. It now publishes a new issue every week on its recently redesigned website, each featuring four original reviews.
This week’s special ‘1,000’ issue features Gary Magee and Andrew Thompson’s Empire and Globalisation: Networks of People, Goods and Capital in the British World, c.1850–1914, reviewed (http://www.history.ac.uk/reviews/review/1000) by Stuart Ward, and Elizabeth Tilley’s take (http://www.history.ac.uk/reviews/review/1003) on The Punch Brotherhood: Table Talk and Print Culture in Mid-Victorian London by Patrick Leary.
Two major new digital resources, The Illustrated London News Historical Archive, 1842–2003 and London Lives 1690–1800, are also reviewed (http://www.history.ac.uk/reviews/review/1001 and http://www.history.ac.uk/reviews/review/1002), by Peter Sinnema and Ben Heller respectively.
