Editorial Reviews

Review

"The definitive guide for how to cite every conceivable kind of source a historian might use, from traditional archival materials to digital media to the most arcane sources imaginable." --John B. Boles, William P. Hobby Professor of History, Rice University

"Twenty-first century technology confronts historians and students with a bewildering proliferation of information some of it accurate and too much of it dubious. In Evidence Explained, Mills demonstrates how to separate the wheat from the chaff and how to report one's sources and achievements. This encyclopedic guidebook is an invaluable resource for historians, students and editors alike." --Jon Kukla, author of Mr. Jefferson's Women and A Wilderness So Immense: The Louisiana Purchase and the Destiny of America

"Historians will welcome the publication of this detailed guide to citations. Even avid users of The Chicago Manual of Style regularly encounter sources for which that handbook gives no guidance. Now we can turn to Elizabeth Shown Mills's comprehensive work."--Journal of Southern History

"A key resource guide for scholars and serious researchers who must rely upon and understand historical evidence. Highly recommended."--R.V. Labaree, Choice

"This is an essential resource for family historians; highly recommended for all libraries."--Library Journal (First edition: Library Journal Best Reference 2007)

"In standardizing a family history style, Mills has advanced the discipline. She has given researchers, writers, editors, and publishers invaluable new tools to bring quality and consistency to their work and distinction to the field."--National Genealogical Society Quarterly

"Meant not only as a style guide for the types of source citations used by historians and genealogists, this book also discusses why analysis of information within the total context of a source is imperative to understanding the nature of a fact. Citations not only tell where the source was found, but also can indicate a level of confidence to knowledgeable researchers." --Association of Professional Genealogists Quarterly
