Cambridge Histories, with over 100 years of content and 350+ volumes, is a series of continually updated reference works covering a broad range of subjects across the humanities and social sciences. Cambridge University Press intended the series to cover all of human history with concentrations in political and cultural history, literature, philosophy, religious studies, music, and the arts. Each volume includes authoritative narrative accounts by specialists and extensive bibliographies. Some histories are individual volumes, while others are part of multi-volume series (eg. History of Violence). The search interface is simple and straightforward, the text is fully searchable and books or book chapters can be linked directly from Sakai. Downloading of individual chapters is permitted.
