Pressestimmen

This work is extremely useful and highly recommended for all types and levels of libraries. American Reference Books Annual, vol. 38 (2007) ...a comprehensive, even-handed, and reliable introductory guide to the War of 1812. Even American readers with some specialized knowledge of the subject will find much of value in the volume, especially when they are seeking information about many of the Canadian aspects of the conflict. The Journal Of Military History Recommended. CHOICE ...a handy and useful reference guide to the war...well researched, finely presented and extremely useful...for those interested in this period or in the War of 1812, the Historical Dictionary of the War of 1812 is a necessary addition to your library. Canadian Defense Quarterly Malcomson's Dictionary will facilitate further inquiry into these understudied areas because it provides a worthy blueprint for understanding the War of 1812. International Journal Of Maritime History, Volume XVIII, No. 2 (December 2006) Although the War of 1812 has all but disappeared from American history, it involved controversial diplomatic maneuvering and exciting encounters on land and at sea, many of which are described in detail in this dictionary. Other entries cover political and military figures; ships and weaponry; and the roles of the British, Canadians, Native Americans, and the fledgling United States. Malcomson, a former elementary school teacher and writer specializing in the War of 1812, presents an overview of the war in his introduction and provides a chronology of significant events and an extensive bibliography. Reference and Research Book News This book will prove a useful addition to a series whose title suggests, alas, that its publishers will never have a difficulty in finding ideas for additional volumes.
