The Social Sciences & History Web is designed to provide access to scholarly resources in selected subject and geographic areas within the field of Western European Studies. We do not strive for exhaustiveness but rather for quality. The resources organized here have undergone a selection and evaluation process. If needed, annotations have been provided augmenting the research value of these resources to scholars.
