Description: Reviews in American History provides an effective means for scholars and
students of American history to stay up to date in their discipline. Each
issue presents in-depth reviews of over thirty of the newest books in
American history—reviews that are far superior to those found in
other scholarly journals. Retrospective essays examining landmark works by
major historians are also regularly featured. The journal covers all areas
of American history including economics, military history, women in
history, law, political history and philosophy, religion, social history,
intellectual history, and cultural history.
The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue
available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal.
Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a
publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current
issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year
moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
Terms Related to the Moving Wall
Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive.
Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title.
