Editorial Reviews

Review

"The definitive introductory guide. . . . In an online world marked by evanescence, this book will long remain a vade mecum for dedicated amateurs and professionals."—Choice



"This is an important book that fills an important niche: a careful and comprehensive report to the field on the development and possibilities of online history, enhanced by a thoughtful set of conceptual and technical recommendations for novice online historians showing them how they might go about launching, sustaining, and preserving an online digital history project. The team that produced this manuscript at the Center for History and New Media is arguably the most advanced group working on digital history in the United States today."—Stephen Brier, The Graduate Center, CUNY

This book is as advertised. It is easy to read and understand, although it is quite extensive and a lot to read.

Format: Paperback
A remarkable mix of history and "xml", presented with a readable and often amusing text. The "screenshot" examples were very helpful.
