From the publisher:
Reading about history on encyclopedia-type sites can be a drag. The information is completely static, and new research and discoveries take time to make their way into the text. History blogs, on the other hand, recognize that history is a dynamic field: they update frequently and find new and interesting ways to interpret old information. Here you will find a list of the best historical blogs out there, organized by both time period and region.
