They offer a contextualized overview respecting history as evolution and continuity across time suggesting how one event or thing is related to another. They give the BIG picture. They are a natural complement to such resources as Gale Virtual Reference (a huge collection of scholarly encyclopedias) and Blackwell Reference (a large collection of scholarly handbooks and dictionaries). Entries conclude with bibliographies.   More Info
