Arkansas History, 2004: A Selected Bibliography

Article excerpt

IN AN EFFORT TO BE INCLUSIVE, Arkansas history has been broadly defined in the compilation of this bibliography. Some materials, such as genealogical or local history society journals, government documents, and nonprint productions, have been omitted. The Arkansas Historical Quarterly is cited as AHQ. The dissertation section has been broadened this year to include master's theses, and a compilation of theses from the past decade is included in that section. These materials may be purchased from UMI/ProQuest and are available at some libraries.
