Now including a CD-ROM, this redesigned and thoroughly updated edition of The History Highway guides users to the astonishing amount of historical information available on the Internet. It features more entries on non-U.S. history than ever before, and the CD-ROM contains the entire contents as PDF files with live links, so that users can put the disk into their computers, go on line, and click directly to the sites. A special feature, "Editor's Choice," indicates superior destinations for researchers. In addition to the complete new edition, three specialized versions are also available offering specific coverage of just those sites that apply to world history, U.S. history, or European history, along with basic information about Internet research that is included with all four versions. Covering hundreds of sites and designed for ease of use and maximum flexibility, The History Highway 3.0 is an indispensable tool for historical research in the twenty first-century, no matter what the area or level of interest.
