Book and Media Notes


After nearly thirty years' service as one of Arkansas studies' most useful compilations, A Documentary History of Arkansas is in a second edition. Like the first, it is edited by the University of Arkansas at Little Rock's C. Fred Williams, S. Charles Bolton, Carl Moneyhon, and Le- Roy Williams. Bolton oversees Arkansas history to 1836; Moneyhon has charge of 1836-1900; Le Roy Williams covers 1900-1954; and C. Fred Williams is responsible for the years since 1955. The material the editors have chosen to illustrate the course of state history range from official documents, court decisions, and legislation to personal correspondence, press reports, public addresses, and labor contracts. The editors provide introductions to every chapter and have updated the bibliographies at the end of each. Most changed, not surprisingly, is the last section, which includes a new chapter on Arkansas since 1985, addressing such topics as term limits, the state lottery, Walmart, gas drilling in the Fayetteville shale, and the Lake View litigation on public school funding. An essential volume for any student of the state's past, the new edition of A Docu- mentary History of Arkansas is available in paper from the University of Arkansas Press for $21.95. Contact the press at 105 N. Mcllroy Avenue, Fayetteville, AR 72701; www.uapress.com.

The new mobile version of the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies' Encyclopedia of Arkansas History and Culture has been honored with an Award of Merit from the American Association for State and Local Histo- ry. This is the AASLH's most prestigious recognition for achievement in the preservation and interpretation of state and local history. Among other things, the mobile version allows historians on the go to secure quick and reliable information about sites mentioned anywhere in the more than 3200 entries of the EOA.
